    Here they are. I ordered four pullets from Ideal Poultry, but as you can see, they messed up on one of the "girls" identity. They were hatched April 16, 2008.

    Check out the comb and wattles on that big boy! Those are some really nice birds! Have the pullets begun laying yet?

    They are beautiful birds! I Love white chickens and they are so nice and white. Does this breed lay well?

    They are very pretty! Don't think I've ever seen white JG. Considering they are from Ideal, the quality is pretty good, IMO.

    ajablu, my White Giants never laid an egg.

    Your birds legs are much more yellow than mine were! LOL! Interesting to see the differences among breeds!

    If you're wanting to breed them, working on the light eye coloration and the leg coloring would be a good area to start at.

    Pretty birds!

    Thankyou everyone. No, the pullets haven't begun laying, and my mother is impatiently waiting for them to lay. We are planning to breed them next spring and have eggs and chicks availible. [​IMG]
