Is this an Orphington and a Giant White Jersey?

    Here are a couple of pictures of a few hens I acquired a few days ago. I think the Big white one may be a White Giant new Jersey, It is huge, and the buff colored one maybe a Buff Orphington, but I thought they were a lot bigger than her . What do you guys think?

  2. I would say yes to the buff orp. She looks just like the two I have in the barn. The white hen may be a Plymouth rock hen, but my black New Jersey Giant hen looks like them too except black.
    Now, I do not know if the legs on a white are supposed to be yellow. My Jersey Giant has slate legs.

    Thanks RIMSHOES. I have a huge Black hen which I believe is a Jersey Giant too. This white hen is just about as big as my black hen, thats why I'm thinking it may be the white variety. I have never seen any pictures of the White Jersey Giant. Anyone?

    All I can tell you is that the buff orp certainly looks like a buff orp. sweetness on a perch [​IMG]

    The legs of a giant are not yellow except, I believe, on their foot bottoms. White rock is closer to the one in the pix.

    I need to take pics of my White Giant hens. They do not have yellow legs. Theirs are a willow green (slate) color. You may have a White Rock.. just a guess. [​IMG]

    My white Jersey giants had willow green legs. Yours is a white rock. What color are the buff's legs? If she's an orpington, they will be white. If she's a buff rock, they will be yellow.
