    He is aprox 5 months old - 1st crowed this morning! He is a real gentle giant and would love to know his breed xxx

    No feathers on the legs at all.

    He is anything but flighty....a totally docile, big gentle giant. He's lovely :) At the moment he has adopted 5 chicks (not his own) and appears to be like a broody dad......he takes them all to the waterer and feeder and doesnt let anyone else near them!! (except their Silkie mum). He has an amazing crow - very loud, long and deep??

    I don't know if the pic shows it but he is going to be BIG. I mean he is not fully grown and is up to my hip when strutting and it really heavy.

    I love him but really want to know what he is :)) xx
