Have several breeds of black pullets. All are 4-5 weeks old. It is time to move the fully feathered youngsters to their new homes. Problem is-at this age how do I tell the black minorcas, black australorps and black giants apart? They are all so...........well black! actually I only really need to be able to tell the giants from the others-the others go to the same place. the giants are mine. any hints?

Minorcas have big white earlobes

Australorps and Giants are hard to tell apart, but the bottom of their feet are different colors. i can't exactly remeber which was which color, but i think the giants have pink on the bottom of their feet and australorps have yellow.

should the "feet bottoms" and white earlobe be apparent at four weeks? Actually the feet bottoms are the most important because the giants will be mine!
