    Hi everyone, I'm new the the world of chickens and backyard chickens.com and I'm loving it! Located in Lake city fl. Trying to figure out what breed of rooster i got. I think he might be a mix. [​IMG]

    He is beautiful! Is he a big guy? He looks like my blue Jersey Giant minus the feathered feet. I would say Cochin maybe.

    Thanks for the reply. He's not huge, he's only a few inches traler than my Americauna pullets. The pullets are about 18 weeks or so and he's supposedly just over a year.

    He's got smooth grey legs and feet.
    I thought jersey giant as well, but he's not giant, then again that term is relative i guess. ..[​IMG]

    I am inclined to agree based only on what I have learned here. Handsome nontheless.
