    Two weeks ago I bought 5 day olds from the *sexed heavy pullets* bin at Atwoods. The chicks come from Ideal. I am 90% certain I have all of one breed.

    Broody hen is raising them, so I don't handle them overly much. Solid black (little yellow on some bellies), pretty certain they all single combs, black legs and feet, the feet are slightly yellow on the bottom. Browsed the chick pics on Ideal and McMurrays websites. Come to the conclusion they are black jersey giants. No problem at all, I like JGs. Like any of the LF breeds really.

    Except....

    Two of the chicks are starting to really feather in well now and across their wing bows and back they are getting brown-ish/gold barring. Jersey giants don't have that, do they?

    I'll get some pics when I can.

    Sounds strange with their feathering. Looking forward to seeing the pics.
