    Just wondering what the growth rate would be for them. Also if I have black chicken and white chicken will their chicks be gray?

    I was interested in maybe raising some roos for meat purposes which is why I was looking for a weight chart. Beautiful bird by the way.

    Raising Jersey Giants roos for meat won't work very well because Jersey Giants don't grow fast they grow slow but just keep growing
    when all the other chickens have stopped.

    Birds from a hatchery generally don't grow to what's "standard". May not be pure Jersey giant either.

    I've got two chicks, not sure if I will be able to keep 'em. I *think* atleast one is a boy.
