    When I bought this rooster a couple of years ago I was told he was a Jersey Giant. However, the more I have learned over the last couple of years the more I have come to doubt that. He is a large boy!

    I bought him because I fell in love with him. It really doesn't matter what breed he is to me. I am just curious.

    A black Cochin or a Langshan would be my guess. He's got heavier leg feathering than your average Langshan but is more upright than your average Cochin. [​IMG]

    Gorgeous for sure! [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    I think he is beautiful too. He's such a sweetie. My 9 year old swings with him and he falls asleep in her lap.

    Thanks NYREDS. I had a feeling he was a Cochin of some sorts or a cross with one.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me.
