A while back I was given two roosters, that were both supposed to be Jersey Giants. Figuring that I'd keep them both, a while, to see which one wound up the dominant one, then either trade the other, or send him to freezer camp. A few weeks ago, began noticing some coloring in the hackles of one of them, and now the golden-reddish/copper color is very distinct. I am now doubting his breed. Not that it matters much. The other rooster seems more dominant, and will be the breeding cock. But, I am curious, if I may have something unusual here. Someone suggested that he might be a Rhode Island Black, or even a VERY DARK Rhode Island Red. His coloring reminds me much of the coloring in the female sex-links. But, his black feathers have a greenish sheen, much like my Australorp. The last photo, shows both of the "Jersey Giant" roosters, next to one of my Narragansett Toms. My friend who gave him to me got him from another breeder, so he believed them to be JG's. This one didn't develop the colored hackles, until after he came to stay with me. Heck, for a long time, his saddle feathers weren't even showing well, and I wasn't certain he was a rooster, though my friend was positive that he was. Also, in the first photo, you'll see a whitish hen, with orange highlights around her hackles, and tail, like a Columbian pattern, only orange, not black. Any ideas on her breed, if any, would be welcome. She was feral, in my area, and just kind of joined my flock one day. I guess she preferred the feed I gave my birds, over hunting for food, every day. She forages well, but she would rather eat commercial feed.
