    I bought White Orpingtons, White Rocks and White Jersey Giants on July 13,09. I was wondering which ones are which. Some are big, some have a grey tint to them and some have yellow feet. Does anyone know which characteristic goes with which breed?Thanks

    White Orpingtons:
    White legs, white beak probably an orange-look to their eyes.

    White Plymouth Rock:
    Yellow legs, yellow beak, may have orange look to their eyes or could be a greenish look.

    White Jersey Giant:
    Willow-colored legs with yellow on the undersoles. Yellow, in hatchery birds, may or may not be seen. The eyes on a White Jersey Giant should be a nice dark chocolate color, but again...hatchery birds don't always conform to the standards.

    The WJG could be the ones that are gray tinted. should be a little larger than WR and WO.
