Long story short, we got our Jersey Giant and four of her friends from a family who was shutting down their 5-bird hen house and another chicken and a duck from another family who was doing the same thing. My question is this: Is it possible for my "Giant" to not be a JG at all? She's pretty small in comparison to my ameracauna (she looks like a bantam next to her) and I'm pretty sure she's the smallest chicken we have. She's about 1.5 years old and lays regularly. Her feathers are solid black, but, she has a beautiful green sheen to her. Is it possible that she is a JG, she's just a little small; or is it possible that she's a different breed that looks similar to a JG? I'm still pretty new at this, so, I appreciate the help with my newbie questions.
