    It is not a trick question.
    What color are white giants when they are chicks? Are they yellow or cream? I have 3 white leghorns I ordered and 3 white giants, but only have 3 true yellow looking chicks. I just got the order in today, so I don't know what is what exactly yet.

    My white jersey giants were grayish white. I got mine from Ideal. Hope this helps!

    white birds can be kinda odd colors when they're chicks. i've had pure white, yellow, creme, brownish, and grey.

    The white giants have gray legs and the leghorns will have yellow legs. As the giants get older they are a grayish white color before they are completely white.

    Actually White Giants have willow green legs not grey legs.
