    I recommend you check out the National Jersey Giant Club website and BYC's Jersey Giant thread.

    Weights:

    Cock---------13lbs

    Cockerel----11lbs

    Hen-----------10lbs

    Pullet---------8lbs



    Jersey Giants are dual purpose breeds. Jersey Giants lay brown to dark brown eggs. They provide a great amount of meat.

    Jersey Giants are fully grown at about 2 years of age. My oldest Jersey Giant is 6 years old and still thriving.


    Egg production will vary. Some are better layers than other.


    Good luck!
