ever cross buff orpington and jersey giants?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I was thinking of breeding some chickens but I wasn't sure which breed I wanted to do.  Does anyone have any pictures of a buff orpington/jersey giant cross?  I would be real curious to see what type of chicken that produced.

I'm not directly crossing those two breeds, but I am crossing a BR x BO rooster with a Jersey Giant hen this year... as soon as we get them hatched I will post pics

That this universe, in all it's infinite wonder, simply is, that it exists at all, is good enough for me. In my eyes, to say that something had to "create" it, to make it what it is, only succeeds to cheapen the experience, to make it less special.

I may have a buff Jersey giant chick.hu.gif It is a gorgeous buff color, and twice the size of all the other chicks, so we call her GI-NORMASAUR yippiechickie.gif ( or Eleanor to my daughter). She makes our little silver bantam look puny! All the chicks are only 3 weeks old, and starting to feather........so cute when they try to fly!jumpy.gif

I have a friend in north GA who crossed a Black Jersey hen with a BO rooster.  I saw the results at 9 months and on of the rosters looked like a giant New Hampshire. Very nice looking, very big and very docile.  Because of those birds, I now have six Jerseys to breed.

did you ever figure out the jg and bo cross?
I have three jerseys that are starting to lay soon and four buff baby chicks that I haven't determined their sex yet...
was hoping to find some pics!

I did. These are from a pen of Jersey and Buff hens with Jersey and Buff roos. Coming on 4 wks old. Some look buff, one little roo is all jersey. Some have amazing lacing. I'm really impressed with the lacing being reversed on diff ones.
