    ok so my chicks are on there journey home, They should be at the post office tomorrow! I cant wait! I ended up hatching 24 eggs of my own, All of them are black but 1! Then my husband actually let me get 12 Cornish cross chicks yesterday [​IMG]!! Yup and 15 giants arriving tomorrow! I'm going to be a very busy woman! Rottnwarrior how are your giants doing? How big is your boy? Can you get a good pic of them near a gallon waterer to show the size of them? I will be posting pics of my babies when I get them home! I just don't know how I will tell the giants from my mixed flock babies!

    Well, everyone, I'm very happy to see this thread has been popular! I don't have Jersey Giants, but my intention was to get a thread for anyone who does. I'm probably going to unsubscribe from this thread, but good luck to all of you on your jersey giants projects!

    Good luck!
