    I have two of these. They are identical except that one has a slightly smaller white dot by the eyes than the other, but both have clear dots. They came from TSC, and probably from Mt. Healthy.

    Could this be a sex-link pullet, or maybe an Australorp? There is no white dot on the head. I've posted about this chick before, but now that it's a little bigger I'm giving it its own thread.

    Roo or pullet guesses are also wanted!

    looks like an australorp except the legs look too yellow, unless they fade, can't remember if mine did.....
    If they stay real yellow(bottom) then I am going with a jersey giant....

    Oh I forgot about Jersey Giants! Mt. Healthy sells those too.

    JGs have yellow soles on the feet and Australorps have white. Sometimes at that age, it's the only way to tell them apart.

    That's a helpful tip! I think they have yellow soles, I'll double check in the morning.

    I looked at some pictures of Jersey Giant chicks, and they do look a lot like mine! Knowing my luck they will both be roosters though, hah.

    I have a astrolorp from TSC and she has way more light colors on her face, front and underneath.

    australorps have varying degrees of yellow and black, I have seen some with lots of yellow and some with hardly any. With that said, I am still going with Jersey Giant [​IMG]

    Black Jersey Giant. The feet look too yellow for Australorp.
