    So when i first got into chickens, i went to buy some young chicks to keep my JG company. I found some that were around 3 days old (same as her), and picked some. Stupidly, i picked the hugest chick there (around double the size of a JERSEY GIANT chick already!!) and of course he turned out to be a rooster. He’s very pretty now, i was told the chicks I brought were marans or Brahma, so I’m pretty sure he’s pure marans. Don’t plan on showing him though, he’s a right wimp, but will also attack anyone but me. Here’s him at 10 days old, then now at 8 months!

    In the first pic there is a hen in the doorway (fluffy butt pointed toward the camera, gray and white), what is her breed? I have seen a hen like that in one other pic and I would LOVE to have one just like her.

    Splash jersey giant!! The most friendly chicken I’ve ever seen, follow me around like a dog for food! They’re not the most common though, so maybe you might have seen a splash marans? They’re very similar.
