    Hello everyone, another newbie has joined, to be honest I wasn't sure if I should post under new member introduction or here, so I opted for here.

    This is Charlie, to be honest I'm not sure what he is besides a spaz, we're having a small dispute on who is the top roo ;-)
    Besides Charlie (recently purchased), we have 8 other chickens, couldn't tell ya what they are (crs) my husband recently as well, brought the 8 home plus a duck to add to 4 we already have.
    So anyone care to guess what Charlie is?
    (Edited to add another pic)

    Since the bottom of his feet are yellow, that rules out a Black Australorp. Could be an Australorp mix, though, or a Jersey Giant. Whatever he is, beautiful rooster!

    Wow! You guys are fast lol, I was coming back here to edit my original post and ask a question.
    So here goes, since my husband was originally *only* getting a hen and her 2 babies, but came home with 8 plus a duck, would it be fair to say that *chicken math* was involved? Lol

    With the yellow bottoms of the feet, I'd say Charlie is a Jersey Giant rooster.

    Thank you guys so much! I did add another pic, because to my eyes one foot looks pinkish and other looks yellow, hence the question about his breed, I was told when I purchased him that he is a giant, but wasn't so sure lol, either way he's a keeper, besides the fact that I've named him
