    What are these 2 chicks? They are four weeks old and supposed to be jersey giants and females. While your here can you guess at a gender?

    Gray legs? maybe a Cuckoo Marans. The barring doesn't look even enough to be a Barred Rock. You will love the eggs if it is a Marans and a pullet. Not much help other than this.

    I dont think they can marans. The feed store usually order jersey giants and barred rock and a few other breeds but ive never seen marans.

    Jersey Giants have yellow feet. Do yours have yellow feet?

    Quote:I don't know, I know they come in Black, white, blue, and splash. Yours doesn't look like any of those, but [​IMG] If it has yellow feet and black or dark legs, it would have Jersey Giant in it's genes, but again ????
