    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 originally posted this in the wrong forum but couldn't figure out how to delete it, so I apologize for the repost!)

    He appears to have clean (non-feathered) legs, so that rules out a cochin parent as feathered legs are dominant. He's also not rounded like a cochin. Must make him a full Jersey Giant. He's beautiful!

    Thanks so much! I wasn't sure if the feathered-feet was a dominant trait or not. Thanks!
