    Hello all,

    I had such a great time reading all the posts I just had to join. I'm sure I'll learn SO much from everyone :)

    I currently have no chickens, but my order is due next week with 10 giants, which I am so excited about. I ordered them from Ideal. I am not new to chickens, but my old flock consisted of your basic breeds, Rhode Islands, a few bantams, etc. I needed to re-vamp my chicken yard after a particularly harrowing year of tornadoes and what not so now I'm ready to get back to it. I have 2 ducks and a goose currently residing in the chicken yard. I am not sure what the goose is, I received him from a lady who was using a hotshot on him (of all things!) because he "chased her." He doesn't chase me, and is not agressive at all, so poor thing, I think this lady was just afraid of him for no reason and I'm sure the hotshot did not help matters. I have 3 goslings coming in my order too, so he will have some company to suit him better than my 2 elderly ducks. Besides all that, I have 9 dogs, 3 cats, a macaw, and some finches. I hope there are some Jersey Giant owners out there to chat with. as I don't know a thing about this breed other than I have always always wanted some, they are so beautiful!
