Item Information

In the late 1800's, New Jersey breeders created a chicken designed to rival the meatiness of the turkeys of the era. The massive Black Jersey Giant was the result of merging the genetics of several large breeds, while the White Jersey Giant was created later. At maturity roosters often weigh an amazing 11 lb. with hens only a few pounds lighter. Although they grow slowly they eventually are a third larger than most other heavy breeds. These birds are ideal for anyone wanting an impressive hen that lays about 240 extra-large eggs annually. When younger, the birds will mature relatively quickly and begin to lay around 6 months old, but they tend to reach a marketable meat weight slower than other breeds. It could take up to 9 months for this bird to fill out its meat proportions. Jersey Giants are docile, gentle giants that are very winter hardy and do well in confinement and are good foragers. This great dual-purpose breed tends to produce more eggs than other heavy breeds and does not tend to be broody.

Hoover's Hatchery Jersey Giant Chickens, 10 Count Baby Chicks is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good All ten baby chicks arrived live and well. I am however a little upset at the time it took for the baby chicks to get here. They took way longer then the website and the hatchery said they would but other than that I can’t complain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy Customer in the end. I am a happy customer because the beautiful chicks arrived today Nov. 15th. Why not 5 stars? Due to the fact that I placed the order Oct. 25th. I waited patiently but had to finally call Tractor Supply Help line Nov. 11th. Within an hour I was told the shipping was to be Wed. Nov. 13th and pickup would be Nov.15th. All fine now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jersey Giant Chicks Our chicks arrived a day early healthy and happy. We received two extra to cover any casualties but they all survived the trip and initial days in the brooder and are still going strong after 2 weeks! We will be ordering another batch from Hoover's again when these leave our brooder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Jersey Giant Pullets My Black Jersey Giant pullets arrived today, all were alive and healthy! They were the stars of my local post office. They were expertly packaged in a very well designed box. They wasted no time at all getting used to their brooder and starting to eat and drink. Great buy!

Does the Jersey Giant rooster make a good protector of a flock of normal chickens?

Asked by: Chickenman101
Jersey Giant males are a good selection to protect a flock as they are more gentle with hens and larger to protect the flock

Are these good sitters & mothers to their chicks?

Asked by: Maddogg2069
Jersey Giants have a good reputation as good sitters. Not as good as a Buff Orpington but still decent

How long to they take to fully grow?

Are they winter hardy?

Asked by: Kurtismayfield
Genetics sold on tractorsupply.com are weather hardy to cold and heat. The Jersey Giant in particular, due to size and strong structure, is well respected in cold conditions to withstand the temperatures and still have outstanding layability
