    I have two JG "pullets", or do I? They are very different looking. Bought them from the feed store as pullets. What do you all think?

    If the bottoms of their feet are a pinkish white color, it's an Australorp. If they are yellow, it's a JG. Hope this helps you some.

    You could have one of each. The second one looks to be a roo.

    thanks for the info, I tried to look at their feet, pretty dirty from scratching outside, I think they are yellow. Would I get an Australorp from the hatchery instead of a JG?
