Black Jersey Giant thread!!!!! - Page 29
Here are a few pics of our chickens
So glad I found this thread! My husband and I are wanting to add a jersey giant to our new 'flock'. I have a 1 year old Australorp hen named rooster Cogburn and then 2 one week old chicks (1 black sex link, 1 buff orpington) that I got the other day. I want a pullet,my husband wants a cockeral. Im not opposed to the cockeral because i like the aspect of a big ol protector for the girls. But I'm worried that i don't have enough hens to keep a rooster happy and i don't want him to hurt my ladies.Thoughts? Also, how so the hen and rooster personalities differ? Any advice is more than welcome!!!!

Does anyone have any pictures of their chicks after starting to feather in? I was sold some BJG, was really excited to get them, and they started feathering in and they're not feathering purely black. They have red/gold leakage, and it's pretty bad. I'm pretty sour about it, considering the seller made a big deal about being NPIP and selling only SQ birds and how their birds have won awards, yada yada yada. This is what mine look like right now :
They insist that their birds didn't get mixed with any of their other breeds, and they've made no move to try to fix the issue. Ugh. I'm so tired of getting burned on chicks!!! >:(
