    I was wondering if anyone knows if there are any specific identifing differences between the barred rock and jersey giant chicks? Alot of the photos I have been able to find look very similiar. I have ordered both breeds and going halves with a friend but do not want to give up to many of either one. Thanks for your time.

    The barred rocks will have white dots on their heads like this:

    The Jersey Giants won't.
