    Here is one of my 9 week olds. She is all black, very soft with dark legs with yellow feet. Is this a Jersey Giant? And is it a hen? Hoping for some confirmation.

    She's a pullet, for sure. Can't help you with the breed though.

    I've got 4 Jersey Giant hens. Two of my black ones look a lot like yours. Here's some pics at 5 weeks old.[​IMG]

    Here are a couple new pictures. She is now 14 weeks old. But now I am not sure she is a Jersey Giant. Yes her feet are yellow on the bottoms. But... now she has feathers growing in on her legs! What does it mean??? I have read about Langshans having feathered shanks, but do they have yellow feet?
