    Ok - this is what we bought as a Black Giant, but he definately has something else in there.

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    Goodness, there is no telling. What color is his skin? Legs?

    You could ask where you got him from what breeds they have.

    Good luck!

    Thanks everyone [​IMG]. I did post in the Gender / Breed forum and received a few thoughts from folks. We bought him at a trade-days event so I probably will not be able to find out from them. His legs are black - not sure about his skin. He is absolutely beautiful though [​IMG] And he is a very large roo compared to the others!

    oh I forgot to mention that IMO he looks to have some game in him, but he's gorgeous!

    Actually, he may be Black Giant. I had a couple come out looking like this from a brother-sister cross. It just goes to show you what genes are hidden when you cross back close relatives. I've also had a few come out with a few red feathers in their hackles.

    someone asked what color skin he has, and I can tell from the pic he is white skinned, not yellow.
    He is not pure Black Giant, you can tell from the white in his ear lobes (which is also where I see that he does not have yellow skin.)
