Jersey Black Giant Chicken

The Jersey Giant is considered the largest of all dual-purpose chicken breeds and largest purebred chicken breed. While they are considered a dual purpose breed, they Jersey Giant excels as a meat bird because of it's massive size. The males weigh in up to 13 pounds and the hens can be as heavy as 10, though they do not reach full maturation until about 8 or 9 months.

Though they are not revered for their egg production, Jersey Giants will lay more eggs than most other heavy breeds. The eggs produced will usually be brown and extra large.

As their name suggests, Jersey Giants were developed in the late 19th century in Burlington County, New Jersey. They were developed by selective crossing of Black Javas, Black Langshans, and Dark Brahmas to create a breed with an enormous frame, yellow skin, and a single comb. The intention was to breed a chicken that could be substituted for the turkey on the table.

Chicks Galore!! April 24, 2015
Reviewer: Frank Ashworth from Dover, NC United States  
I placed my largest order yet and was concerned with losses in route. Not only did all chicks make it alive but they hit the ground running and are doing wonderful in their new home. You are now my only source for chicks bringing new genes to my flock.

Beautiful Chickens April 8, 2015
Reviewer: Dale Eva from Woodburn, OR United States  
I love my jerseys! We ended up with one rooster despite ordering pullets, who we processed and ate (we nicknamed him Fugly despite him being the most beautiful iridescent green). Our remaining ladies are wonderful birds, they come to us in the mornings and lay light brown eggs every day, although not as big as we were hoping/expecting. Great birds, and good for eggs and meat.
