None of those are white Giants. White Giants have slate legs. Yours have pearl and yellow.

The ones with the yellow legs are White Rocks.
The bottom one looks like it's a mix...Cornish comes to mind. Those are some BIG shanks on that little bird...so Cornish looks about right to me.

Your Buff Orp looks like a pullet to me.
Pict. 2 looks like pullets.
Pict. 1 looks like a pullet. I can't tell her legs though because of the sunlight, but I'm going to say white rock or white Leghorn. Can't really tell yet because of the angle that it's taken at.

I would say hands down the last photo is of a Cornish...but the legs are throwing me off. Cornish are supposed to have yellow legs...

Nonono...don't mean cornish cross either. I work with those birds as well and that bird looks nothing like it.

Can you get some more photos of the bottom black bird?

What color was your white giant as a chick? Mine from McMurray were dark gray to black as day-olds, then feathered in white with dark legs.
