    I got some Jersey Giant eggs from a local woman and so far 5 have hatched. (They're about 15 hours old) They're the sweetest chicks I've ever hatched!!

    I use a medium cat carrier as a brooder. We installed a heat bulb inside it and cover it with towels to keep the heat inside.

    As soon as the babies see me, they come cheeping to the front of the brooder. The climb into my hand and snuggle in.

    I'm in L-O-V-E!!

    Are all JG chicks this sweet and friendly??

    Mine were snuggly like for a few days, then they out grew it. Maybe if you continue to give them a lot of attention, it will last longer.

    My Jersey Giants I got in my 26 MPC Rainbow Pullet Special are by far the friendliest chicks ever.

    At 5 wks old yesterday, they come rushing over to see what I'm doing. Flying up on my hands and arms to get close.

    I love them.
