    that is a white leghorn roo a giant would have black/darkgray leg and have a much biger body

    and those white earlobs give it a way that is is a leghorn and not a giant sorry they lied to you [​IMG]

    I don't think JG are supposed to have yellow legs and white earlobes. He looks more like a white rock, but I could be mistaken.


    ETA: Yes Leghorn makes more sense. Don't know why I didn't think of that! [​IMG]

    Aside from what the others have said, (white earlobes, yellow legs) - Trust me, - If he was a real Jersey Giant, you'd know. [​IMG]
