    I had bought some jersey giants and sex links. After getting them all home I had a few die. Now I'm not sure if I have any giants left. Can't really tell them apart. What do you think?[​IMG]

    It is hard to see black birds clearly in your pictures, so better photos are probably needed. Black sex links often have brown or red feathers around their necks where Jersey giant are all black with yellow on the bottom of their feet.

    Jersey Giants have YELLOW foot bottoms. Any other color is not JG. Best wishes.

    Agreed. From the way the photos look I see several JG, but I could be wrong due to the pic. Sex links "should" be easy to spot due to the other colors that "bleed" out.
