    Looks kind of roo-ish, but then again I'd think at 1.5 months it'd have a lot bigger comb/waddles.

    He's the only one with a noticeable comb and wattles...which are pretty small. Hes definitely the leader and the only one of two that'll eat from my hand. But he also likes to peck toes. His name is hannibal for cannibalizing a pipped chick while in the bator and pecking me every chance he got. But he is my absolute favorite and I'd hate for him to be a roo. (I promised my husband he can eat the roos) He's also much bigger than the other chicks except one. Does that sound roo'ish?

    I think so..but I'm no expert.
    I know that Jersey Giants are slow growers. That's it.
    I wish someone else could come and tell you more about "him". [​IMG]

    ETA: Maybe you should go over to the Jersey Giant thread and ask them. They might know.
