    I was able to get a few pictures this morning.

    The one on the upper left I think is a Black Giant, right is a Barred Rock.

    This is what it looked like when I got them. I now know that the hatchery will mark them so a person can tell them apart.

    How many should you have?

    Pic #1 BR is in the center.
    Pic#2 BR on left
    Pic #3 BR on left

    Pic #4 the 2 on far right with white dots look like BR.

    I think you are right about the barred rock.

    Black giants though are totally black. I think the chick in the first pic to the far far right is your black giant. I've never seen a black giant with any barring or specks of other color.

    I ordered 6 BR pullets. A friend of mine ordered 6 Black Giants. He took his home when they were 1 week old. Problem is he lives in Memphis,Tn. And I live in Lynchburg,Tn. We are going to meet in Nashville on the 5th of July. Anyway I think I have 3 BR's and 4 of his BG's. Just trying to sort this out. Any help is appreciated.

    If you could post side views of them that would be great then we could help you better.

    Is that all you ordered because in pic # 3 looks like a EE or welsummer on the right
