    OMG... They had these Leghorns and Black Australops at the show this weekend. I dont know what variety they were, or if it was the fact that it was a bantam club show and 99% of the birds were bantams, but they were HUGE!!! Guard dogs of birds...

    The Jersey Giants are supposed to be HUGE too!

    Jersey Giants, by far! They have a most awesome crow, too. Nice & low! If I didn't already have 3 roos, I'd get me one!

    Biggest roosters I've seen looked like white wyandottes. They were enormous.

    Quote:There is always a comparison, I can compare my frizzle Cochin roo to your Jorsey Giants, mine would loose, but the comparison can be made. What would the point of the question be if we were not allowed to compare???
