    I hope some one can help me out. I got some black australorps a few weeks before I got my black Jersey Giants. I neglected to put leg bands on them so now that they're almost laying age, Im having trouble telling them apart. A couple have black combs & a few have red combs. does that help? All have black shanks.

    JG should have yellow on the bottom of their feet and Aust's should be white or pinkish.Mike

    Thank you! Ok I checked all the feet & think there's 5 Australorps (put blue leg bands on them) & 3 Jersey Giants(green bands) & Im hoping only one cockrel of each. (could I be that lucky ;) ?) what do you think?

    Yes, as far as I can tell, you only have two cockerels. I guess luck was on your side. [​IMG]
