    We raised this chicken as a baby but are not sure what kind it is. She is over 2 feet tall. No hair on the legs. [​IMG]

    I think it's a Jersey Giant cockerel. They're slow to mature, that would explain no crowing yet.

    Check the bottom of his feet. if he is a Jersey Giant, they should be yellow.

    X2 on that. If they are whitish or greyish, he is a Black Australorp, but I'm thinking based on your description of his size that he's a Black Jersey Giant.

    She doesn't have yellow feet so I think she is the Blue Australorp. Thank you all for your help!!

    You do realize the bird is male, don't you?
