I hope I'm asking in the right place. Does anyone have pictures of a Black Giant White Giant hybrid???? Just curious I tried googling it no results that I was looking for....

Most likely, it's going to look exactly like a Black Giant. The White gene is not a real color but an off switch for pigment. A white bird is really just another color bird who's true color is hidden. In Jersey Giants, this is oftentimes Black because they really only come in those two colors. It could also be Blue (even Splash) though that's less likely. Oftentimes there in no way to predict the offspring of a white X non-white cross since White can, in theory, be hiding anything at all - Partridge, Blue, Mottled, etc. But, in this case since there are very few varieties of Giant extant (I also recently spoke to someone who had made a cross of WJG X RIR and got 100% black chicks), I'd say there's a good chance you'll get 100% black chicks.
