    This is one of my savage cat survivors. I can't find all my info for what I hatched back then, but I THINK she's a blue JG. Am I wrong? If so, anyone know what she might be?

    Quote:Its just me again, I don't know if she is a Jersey Giant but if you look on the bottom of her feet and they are yellow it could be a JG. Thats about all i know about the breed. But you probably already knew about the feet thingy. [​IMG]

    That's why I thought that's what she was, plus I had a few shipped eggs. So I figured she was. If I remember right she's BBS. That'll work. She would have been even better if the cat hadn't scared her so badly. Stupid cat.

    Ok I have a few ideas........the JG is a nice breed in that coloration but it looks a bit to unlike a JG.....

    [​IMG]

    see the green leg coloration and the indication that the bottoms of the feet are yellow???? your bird has willow shanks ......


    Could it possibly be .....

    A Blue Maran?

    [​IMG]

    A Blue Plymouth Rock?

    [​IMG]

    or a Blue Orpington?

    [​IMG]


    Just some ideas....each of these breeds are very rare with a blue coloration and they are all excellent additions to any flock so either way ......... I'm sure you'll be pleased...... I just thought I'd offer a few more possibilities.......I'm leaning towards Orpington strongly due to the size, body type and leg/shank color of your bird...It looks like an orpington to my eye...The coloration is similar to a Blue rock but they have yellow legs and Marans tend to be a bit larger but it is still possible it is a Maran for they too have willow shanks.......but I could be wrong........what till she lays, if the egg is extremley dark brown it is a maran and if not then Id say orpington.....

    Could also be a Blue Wyandotte-they don't always have yellow legs like they are supposed to.

    Is there anyway that you could get better pictures of her/him? maybe a different angle. I looked on the BBS Jersey Giant thread and she really looks like one of them. But the picture is looking a little funky (angle wise) like she has a teeny tiny body, and big head and little feet.
    Also age, color of the the legs and feet, the legs look black in the picture to me? but you can see a little yellow on the edges. and does she have a single comb? I may be alittle blind but I can't see it too clearly. what color is her skin? According to Hendersons chicken chart is should be yellow. Thanks Sandy
    [​IMG] This is from Henderson Breed chart and it looks very much like your chick but maybe little older.
