    The one in the bottom pic on the left sorta looks like it has saddle feathers which makes me think rooster but not sure because I'm not experienced. How old are they?

    My jersey giants were born on February 1st this year so you can compare them to yours. The top photo shows some hens and the bottom one is my Roo. Giants should have red faces. More indicative is that the bottoms of the feet should be yellow.

    There are a lot of characteristics of Jerseys in couple of those birds. The green glossy feathers, the slight horn colored tips on the beak, red faces. If they have black on the bottoms of the feet instead of yellow that would be a fault and indicate there is something other than Jersey Giant in their parentage.
