    this is one of the two babies i got at tsc,for a dollar. i emailed ideal and asked if they could help id them.they say these chicks could be black gaints,or ba. im leaning toward the gaints,because i have 2 ba and they dont really look the same. so if they are black gaints,how are these birds? all of our chicks are pets,but im just wondering if since i read they mature slower about how long until they lay? also if anyone has any pics of grown birds we would love to see them. so what do you all think,gaint or ba?

    I rule out Australorp because it's legs are not green.

    Perhaps a JG, but the legs aren't quite right.

    I would think a blue or splash giant but the legs usually have some black on them. check out giants on feathersite.com
