    our 10 chicks will be 4 weeks old tomorrow. All seem to be doing well. I have a question about 1 chick. Of the 10 we ordered 3 were BR and one was a Jersey Giant. I think we have had the JG confused this whole time. Here is a pic of the bird in question. (on the right)

    In comparison to our Barred Rocks...like this.

    Few more questions.

    I know it is early...any idea if this is a roo or not? Its a brown leghorn

    Also...some of their droppings are coming out liquidy and the color of Grey Pupon mustard. Not all the time and not all birds. Is this still normal for month old chicks?

    Thanks all!

    The bird in the first pic, on the right is a Black Jersey Giant. The brown Leghorn, I would say is a Pullet. The comb is onot looking red at all yet, but it could change later. But for now my vote is Pullet.[​IMG] The poop thing sounds normal to me, I have noticed some of mine do this too, it isnt all the time.

    The brown leghorn is a pullet, but I will note that I think your buff chick is a roo (I see pink in that comb even from a distance).
