    Has anyone out there ever crossed a Black Australorp and a splash Jersey Giant rooster?? Or any other crossed with Jersey Giant roo. We have a beautiful roo and want to find just the right girl for him!! [​IMG]

    I have a couple of big, fluffy self-blue Orpington gals my JG roo kinda likes.

    Unfortunately, other Roos like 'em too, so I couldn't say their eggs might hatch out JG/Orp or not. I don't hatch chicks from my very, varied flock.
