    A few months ago I got some eggs from a breeder. I ordered Cochins, frizzles, and dominiques, but he threw in a few extras. Yolk is black, and his feathers shimmer a green color in the sun. he has yellow-orange eyes, white legs with some black, black undercolor, single comb, four toes, red earlobes, and is 5 months old. I've had some people say he looks like an orpington or a jersey giant, however i'm not sure because I've had a black orpington roo before and he had brown eyes and black legs. He does not have any feathering on his legs. [​IMG]
    This is not the best photo but it is the clearest one i could get of him. he is the chicken behind the bar. [​IMG]
    here is one of yolk when he was 3 months old.
