    What is the difference? I see them and they look almost identical... Just curious and sorry if this has been posted already.

    Giants are larger and more robust. Giants also have yellow skin, australorps have white.

    At least that is what they are supposed to look like. Alot of hatchery birds will not go by what the breed actually is. They will sell anything as long as they can sort of pass it off as the breed.

    Quote:Yep, and I would think the BAs would be better layers.
