Jersey Giants or silkies
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I've read that silkies are good broodies, so l assume they good broody relatively often. I've no clue on Jersey giants. If you only want your chickens for eggs, then large breeds can be more expensive to keep (eat like troopers) than lighter breeds that lay equally as well. I have some commercial dual purpose birds in my flock that lay very well, but they look like they need to be on a diet! I also have a lighter breed (2-3 months) that i am hoping will lay equally as well, but will not look like sumo wrestlers, so hopefully my feed bill will reduce.
