    So I have a problem. I hatched 4 Jersey Giants and 9 Orpingtons. They were not leg banded and are now 3 month old and in the same pen. to make matters worse, they are blue-black-splash.

    Has anyone got any tips to tell them apart before they are old enough to breed?

    Thanks

    Giants should have yellow FEET BOTTOMS, the orps should have white/ pink FEET BOTTOMS
