    Those are not Jersey Giants - they appear to be either Barred Rocks or, given the fact that there are a whole lot of boys in the shot, black sex link males. If you can get a slightly closer shot it would help as there are a couple who are not able to be seen clearly enough for a definitive gender ID in this shot, those that can be seen are definitely male.

    I agree those look like black sex link cockerels. Sorry you got duped. Do you have any recourse with the seller?
