    We named her/him Grease Lightning and quarantined Greasers for a month before introducing her/him to our flock but are unsure of breed or gender! Greasy is still young but tall with beautiful black feathers that have a teal/purple iridescent sheen, there are a few red feathers coming in as well.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    Well, I'd say that's definitely a cockerel judging from those tail feathers! I'm thinking something like Black Australorp or maybe Black Jersey Giant.......I'll see what other people think though.

    I do know that a yellow underfoot means Jersey Giant and white underfoot means Australorp.

    Is this a hatchery bird? Im thinking Australorp just with the wrong colour eyes! How old is it?
