    I have some chicks that are black with a lot of white that I think are Jersey Giants or Austrolorpes. I also some that are black with just a faint touch of white on their head and chest. The wing feathers are black with very faint barring. They have black coloring down the front of their legs and they were in a heavy breed assortment. What are they? Are they barred rocks?

    Does the second one have a single or rose comb? If it's single, it's a BR, if it's a rose comb it's a dom.

    Definitely not Jersey Giants, the feet would be black. Unless they're really off standard.I've never seen an Austrolorp in real life, so I wouldn't know.
