I need help discerning my black java chicks from my black giant chicks. They are still pretty close in size, they all have black legs and feet with yellow soles. Also it is difficult to tell the pullets from the cockerels with some of these guys. When they were 6 weeks old I separated what I thought were the boys from the girls based on comb and wattle development. The pics are from my "pullet" pen. You can see limited combs but the waddles on some of these birds seem to sprout overnight. The Java are a slow maturing bird so I think those with the least comb and waddle development are Java. The pen with who I assume are the boys have nice tall red combs. Any help you can provide will be helpful. Thanks

Thank you....some eyes are dark almost black, the others are more green others are lighter but still dark brown. The birds all have red ear lobes. In answering your questions I believe I can tell which breed is which based on eye color. Thanks for asking me to check that out.
