The Jersey Giant is a rare breed and gets its name for a reason. This breed is the largest there is when it comes to chickens and one of the most striking to look at. The white variation has a stunning pearl-like shine that is silky and well uniformed. Great in both cold and warmer climates, the Jersey Giant is a hardy yet friendly breed. Because of their size, they are less likely to be preyed on by wild animals but still require protection. They make amazing chickens for families with other pets as well as children. They seldom go broody and do not fly well which makes them easier to manage and gives you more options for coops. Annual egg production per hen is 180 to 260 medium brown eggs. Adult males can weigh up to and over 13 pounds and females average around 10 pounds. White Jersey Giants are an APA-recognized breed and are shown in the American Class. The large birds live an average of 8 to 12 years. Our tiny giants at Valley Hatchery come with a live arrival guarantee. All of our baby chicks for sale are bred with quality standards we stand by.
