    We are really enjoying our first set of chickens. Brought them home in April from the local store and with all the excitement forgot what breed they are. Can anyone help? I am hoping the 4 black ones are girls.

    The white in the back were brought home from the grade K class that I work in. Got 2 roos out of the 3.

    Here's the first pic:

    Here's the second:

    Thanks for any help.

    Black Australorps, that or Jersey Giants. You can tell by the color of the bottom their feet. One will have pink-ish feet while the other will have yellow feet. I forgot which is which though. Very pretty girls!

    OP here - Finally got a good look at the bottom of the feet. Yellow - so must be Jersey Giants. Thanks for the help.
