    I got this from a breeder of both bo and australorps. Did i get what he told me was a australorp? He has show quality birds and was wondering if anyone can tell me if this one has those qualities and what they are. Sorry new to this stuff and would like to know for my daughter for her 4-H and other shows so that we dont enter in wrong class and look foolish. Thanks from a newbie.

    It does look like an Australorp but since I don't show I don't know if he's show quality or not. He's beautiful though! [​IMG]

    Black Australorps- bottom of feet will be pink or white. Jersey Giants- bottom of feet will be yellow.

    Can anyone with other show quality roos post pics for comparision? Do judges take points away for 6 point combs or are they looking at the comb as a whole? Nice bird but have seen post about 5 points compared to 6 points.

    I vote for Jersey Giant. Whatever he is, he's gorgeous!
