I have just recently started keeping chickens and have chosen Jersey Giant as my breed of choice.
I have one batch of 6 Blacks and 5 Whites. My second batch is 3 Splashes, two Blues, and 3 Blacks.
I bought the 8 chicks of the second batch from Taylor Hobby Farms, which is a private breeder. All three blacks have a purple sheen instead of green. The six Black Giants from the first batch all have the green sheen.
I was wondering if it was a good idea to just cull the purple or could I breed them with the Blue or the splash?
My goal is to breed the Whites for size (meat and eggs) and maybe breed the Blue to the SOP.
I know the purple is a flaw in Blacks and will not breed it to my first batch.
