    Wondering what your opinions were on this Australorp cockerel? I do not know much about the breed... What is the tail and such suppose to look like? are they suppose to have the same look as the Jersey Giant but have dark-slate gray legs? Is this a SQ cockerel?

    Here's a link to the australian standards.
    I think yours is correct.

    ETA: Keep in mind the Aussies here in america have longer tails and look just a bit different due to different manipulation throughout the breeds history here and over there.
