Baby Chicks: Black Jersey Giant
|Shipping Week||Availability||Other Breeds Available|
Jersey Giants are docile and just gorgeous, with pretty, big eyes and beautiful proportions. While they are larger than most, they're not obviously out of place roaming around in a mixed flock. This breed was developed in New Jersey as a dual-purpose fowl (valued for both meat and eggs). It isn't used on commercial farms because it takes a good seven months for them to grow to full size, whereas commercial strains can reach their desired size as early as 5 weeks of age. The Jersey Giant is good-natured and hens are decent layers of brown eggs. Consider adding one to your flock and helping to keep this heritage breed going strong!
