    I ordered 26 chicks from McMurray and today all of the chicks are 5 weeks old and doing great. In my order of mixed breeds I ordered ONE Australorp. However, the more I check her out, the more I'm wondering if she isn't a Black Jersey Giant. [​IMG] Anyone else have thoughts on this? I will not be really happy if she is a BJG because the Australorps lay many more eggs etc. We named her Tracy and she is super sweet and will keep her of course, but I really did want an Australorp too. They will probably just refund my 3 whole dollars huh? I know they can't send just one out and honestly, I don't want to go back to baby stage right now. I'm enjoying the 5 week old stage quite a lot. [​IMG]

    I have an aussie, and when that age, she had no white on her body at all, so I would say JG!

    Yellow feet = JG. Pink feet would be BA.

    Thanks everyone. I feel pretty safe to say she is a JG. As much as I wanted an Australorp I really do like her. She is very sweet. I just know her egg production is not suppose to be as great as an Aussie but we'll make it. Thanks for the replies. [​IMG]
