    I am looking for the biggest, best JG's I can find. I need 2 doz. or so. 20 hens and 5-10 roos. maybe even 40 or so eggs. I am beginning my attempt to breed up the biggest and most productive JG's ever. I have a great plan and stratagy. I have a huge stack of ID bands and note books. (and feed) lol I am expecting to take between 8-12 years to see a final product. I have an entire operation planned. I just need the best genes to start with. I will be improving gene pool as I go. Aswell as introducing a couple select breeds for different charicteristics. I would appreciate any help and advice, where to look for Healthy, Productive, HUGE JG's.
    Thank you so much,

    Are you looking for Jersey Giants? I'm not familiar with the abbreviation GJ.
