I got four JG chicks from a local feed store. I failrd to ask if this was a srait run or not. I didnt intend to have roos so soon. This is my fav. Its very inquizative cones when i call hangs around me the most and jumps in my hand when i put food to hand feed. It was the bigest it had tail and wing feathers before the others yet not wide as others.noted that the wing feathers are pointed in the finger feathers the others were rounded also feathers seem nerrower. Thr legs sre not as black and are thinnrr. Thers is not much i can tell with the comb it seems to be same size as others. Color looks whitish. Any ideas?
This chick has the lighter chest. Than others than like the one above also has pointy feathers on body but wing is not like above. however the legs are dark and big.

Ill include what i think is hen[/IMG

Welcome to BYC!

I have never kept Jersey Giants so I can't say for sure. I do know that JG's have yellow feet bottoms. Those legs to look like tree trunks so it is very possible he is a roo. You can post this pic in our What Breed and Gender section here on BYC for some good ID and gender...

Good luck with your babies and welcome to our flock!
