    This roo will be six weeks tomorrow, I thought he was a black jersey giant, but I am now suspecting he was a packing peanut of a different breed. He is very reclusive, and skiddish. He has been smaller and taller than all his brooder buddies. His comb is also huge!!! It starts much lower on his beak, is much taller, and flaming red (brighter than in the pic), and was the first of a bunch of 21 to get a comb. He is also devopling red/gold feathers on his neck, and breast. The rest of his feathers are all black, along with his hocks. As a fluffy butt he had less obvious penguin/tuxedo pattern as the other JG's. Any ideas??? Or is he just a mutt? (he came from a hatchery) I also have GLW's in the same order, but I do not think he is one.
