    Hi guys, I'm new to your wonderful discussion forums and have a question about my rooster. He is about 6 months old at the moment and the lady I got him from when he was younger said that he was either full Jersey Giant or a Jersey Giant/Cochin cross. Just wondering if any of you might be able to shed some light on this for me.

    I'm not seeing any feathers on his legs, most cochin crosses seem to have them. He also looks like JG, doesn't have that short fluffy look the cochins do. Are the bottoms of his feet yellow skinned? Is so and if your two choices are JG or CxJG, I'd vote pure JG.

    Thanks! I'll check his feet and see what colour they are on the bottom. I never really noticed before!
