    I got this Roo and when I got him he was all black but now he has some spots on his wings, real pretty and he is very sweet but we were told he was a Jersey Giant. all of the roo's were Giants I don't remember the hens though as they were running around. What do you guys think? the last pic is when he was a little younger and we had just gotten him.[​IMG]

    He's a mix. This is a common color when black and red birds mix.

    Just as an fyi, that font color is very difficult to read for those of us with old eyes [​IMG]

    x2 and I'm sure my eyes are even older - some colors are even painful to look at.

    One of the obvious sign to identify JG is their YELLOW under foot. But the colors of your birds seems like a mix breed

    Do you think he will get to be as big? I was afraid he was a mix when she only wanted 10$ for him. He is super sweet though and funny to watch
