    niether of those breeds have feathered legs so are you sure those are parents? is it possible that your "jersey giant" is acctually a langshan?

    I agree, feather legged chicks had to have a feather legged parent. You'll be able to sex them usually around six weeks, by comb growth and leg thickness.
