    This little guy has feathers that shimmer a brown and green. I bought him as part of Meyer Hatchery's frying pan special. We planned on keeping a couple of the roos and I can't figure out what he is. Thanks!

    how old is he??? It looks like a Black Australorp or a jersy giant, but his comb might be too small to be that

    He is 15 weeks old with what looks to be a pea comb.
