    Best I can come up with is splash Jersey Giant, suggested by someone on here... but can't find ANY photos that look like him... please share your thoughts!

    It definately looks like a splash, but JG depends on how big he will get....he looks pretty young. He could be a cross of some sort, or a very light Andulsian Blue. Still, I think its safe to go with JG for now;) The 2 red tick pups are adorable too [​IMG]

    Did a search for Splash Andalusian, and found some that match him perfectly! He is young, btw - probably 3-5 months old? Came from TSC with a bunch of others mixed in. He is our only blue-legged one, and that is the only reason he's not in the freezer!

    Also read that Andalusians have 5 points on thier combs, and Jersey Giants have 6 points... I believe our guy has 5?

    Aframechickens191 - we have 10 of those little boogers running around - at 4 weeks old, they are too cute! lol Our roo is helping desensitize them to chickens as they grow [​IMG]

    It's an Andalusian. Type is all wrong for a Jersey Giant. Also if it was a Giant the ear lobes would be red not white.

    The rooster is beautiful but LOOK AT THE PUPPIES! They're adorable... I remember when Annie was still that tiny, and now she's a 40 lb lean hunting maching at 7 months. Can't wait til she gets back from training... Ahem, rooster... yes he's pretty!
