    [​IMG] The chicks I have raised are now fully feathered and about a month old-it is time to send some to their respective owners-question-how the heck do I tell the australorps, black minorcas and black giants apart? They are all pullets and all so ..........well black.

    You can't always rely on foot-bottom color to tell JG from BA - my JG from MPC doesn't have yellow bottoms on her feet. Maybe chick size?

    Minorcas should be leaner-looking than JG or BA. Good luck! [​IMG]
