Black Jersey Giant Chicks

The term "giant" is right for these tall, stately birds with shiny black feathers. In fact, Black Jersey Giant Chickens are the largest dual-purpose chicken breed. The breed was developed in the 1880s in New Jersey by breeders who wanted a large roasting bird. While Jersey Giants grow to a large size, they do it slowly. Jersey Giants also lay 180-200+ brown eggs per year. They are a sustainable heritage breed and have a calm and docile personality.
