    I got a few 3 week old chicks from a lady this weekend who very kindly sold me a few of her black giants she acquired from a feed store. Well I have read up on giants and know that in the show world a very small percentage of white is allowed on a Black bird. Welll I kinda dont want ANY white on my birds. Do you think this will fade or is it just not of a good quality breeding?

    Also the beaks...
    Bird 3 has an all black beak

    Bird 2 has a part white part black

    Bird 1 has a mostley white beak

    Will they turn black or always be like this?

    Don't worry! Most black chicks develop the white coloration. It will go away in the first molt.
