    I'm getting confused on the breeds of my youngsters. They are 11 weeks old.

    All Jersey Giants should have yellow on the bottoms of their feet.

    Check the bottom of their feet. If their yellow, its a Jersey Giant.

    Would it be possible to tell Australorp day old chicks from Jersey Giant based on their foot color, or is it too early for that?
    How else might you tell them apart?

    Yellow on the top of their foot or the "sole" of their foot?

    This girl laid 2 eggs a month and a half ago and nothing since. I think she broke.[​IMG]
