White wing tips on a chick: Australorp or Black Giant?

    Our chicks are starting to get their wing fethers (they are four days old) and the chick I thought was an Autralorp has white tips on her wings and I've read that this is a Balck Giant trait.

    I sure hope she's an Australorp and not a Black Giant - I don't want a 10 lb chicken![​IMG]

    All 2 of my 3 Austrlorp have white wing tips. We've named one Oreo Cookie because of it.
