    Here's the one I suspect is a White Giant:


    And the lone barred/cuckoo, I'm guessing Barred Rock - but it could be a Dom too...:

    1. COULD be a white giant...but it should have a greenish cast to it's legs...the legs look yellow or white so I'd look elsewhere.

    2. COULD be a Dominique or a Barred Rock. Surest way to know is to look at the comb. There should be a little tiny single comb for a barred rock and a flat "plane" for a dominique.

    I'd say the first pic is a white jersey giant chick. My quad looked just like that as babies. [​IMG]

    Here is a two week old White Giant. They have willow (green) legs. I am unsure that yours is a giant.

    My white giants had dark legs as new babies, but that doesn't say yours isn't a giant. How much white is coming in her wings?

    Can you tell what the barred baby's comb is? Single or rosecomb?

    They're darling, I'm so excited for you and jealous! I love surprise packages of babies.
