    Hi all,

    This girl is 5 months old (hatched 5/1) and I'm not sure what breed she is. I picked her up from someone who said she came from McMurray's "rainbow layers" assortment. I'm thinking she is a White Jersey Giant but what do you all think? Thanks.

    She's either a White Jersey Giant or a White Orpington. Chick the bottoms of her feet. If they are yellow, she's a White Jersey Giant. If they are whitish or pinkish, she is a White Orpington.

    I'm thinking White Orpington, as the legs look white (though they could be bleached out from laying).

    I'm also leaning towards White Orpington.

    You're welcome. How did the bottoms of her feet turn out?

    The bottoms are whitish like her legs so looks like WO it is.

    Yep, she's a White Orpington. Great birds; hardy, very friendly and gentle (my children, and now my granddaughter, made lap pets of our Orpingtons), and good layers of large, brown eggs. :eek:)
