    Hello! I got this roo for free and was told he was a Copper Maran... however just saw an ad on craigslist for a Jersey Giant and he looks a lot like that so now im second guessing. He has no copper but I always just chalked it up to him being over melanized. What do you think? Either way he is a great docile roo who protects his girls and our one other Roo who he always hangs out with! And yes.. I brought him in the house for pictures lol my fiancé gave me a funny look too!

    I don't know as much about those breeds, not enough to guess...I know Marans have feathered feet and JGs have two colors on their legs/feet....lol. But he is so super pretty!!

    I'm thinking Marans with the feathered legs and white skin.

    Jersey giants don't have feathered feet and they don't have white legs
