    the section on here that lists about breeds says this:
    Australorps are often confused with Jersey Giants, and you can tell the difference by their legs. Jersey GiantsÂ’ legs are black, the bottoms of their feet being yellow. AustralorpsÂ’ legs are black, the bottoms being pinkish-white.

    Looks just like a blue JG cockerel I has a few years back. If you're patient, wait the 2y it takes for a JG to finish growing & then you'll know b/c if he's a JG he'll be huge! Rocks are also usually known for bright clean yellow legs with no mottling or willow.

    Blue Rocks don't necessarily have clean yellow legs, though. Mine do not. They have slate overwash.
