    I just got my chicks today.. I posted pictures of them in the raising chicks section. I said that I didn't get any BJG's (I ordered 6). BUT I took a picture of them to count them and there are 10 Australorps, 6 Light Bantams, 10 mixed banties( 3PC's, 3 silkies, 4 Crested Polish). And 6 other chicks.. could those have been my Giants and they weren't on the shipping list? They look an AWFUL lot like Australorp chicks [​IMG] help?

    from what I understand they look very similar. The only difference is the JG have yellow bottoms of the feet and the australorp have white/pink, but I don't know at what age that becomes evident [​IMG]
