    I ordered 16 black and 16 white Jersey Giants from McMurray. I opened the box and 5 of these little chicks all marked the same were also in the box. Does anyone know what kind this might be? They are all yellow with the black smudge (or line) in between their eyes. This is the only dark coloring on them. They also have white feathers growing out on the tips of the wings. I assume these must had been "extras" so they were thrown in the box also. Which I don't mind, I would just like to know what they might be.

    Yeah I figured they would be roosters but I don't know what kind they are. [​IMG] They are not jersey giants which is all that I ordered. I am just puzzled by what they are. I was leaning towards maybe a Delaware?

    They might be red sex link roosters; I think they're yellow as chicks. Or they could be leghorn, rock, or giant roos. Keep us updated!
