    I am curious about getting a Jersey Giant Hen to cross with my Blackstar Rooster. Has anyone done this? I was hoping for a slightly smaller giant that will lay large eggs and a little more frequently than the normal Jersey and will be a good size for meat. I know the jersey tend to take longer to grow and eat a lot, relatively. So has anyone crossed the jersey with a blackstar, Or maybe even crossed a jersey with a RIR or a barred rock? I was wondering how the chicks turned out.
