    Hi I have a few different chicks that I am just not sure- it was a mixed lot from a breeder who had several different kinds. The lady said it has to be one of the following:
    Araucana, Americana, Barred Plymounth, Black Giants, Columbian Wyndottes, Buff or Lavendar Orpingtons, Rhode Island Red, Black copper maran, or Sussex


    I think this is a jersey giant, but the white on the wings is throwing me off?

    Sorry but definitely not a Jersey Giant. It would be all black, without the white specks. I'd say it's most likely a Marans or Sussex. You should have a better idea when it feathers out more.
