    Does anyone have experience with Jersey Buffs? Do they tend to run smaller than a traditional bronze, or Bourbon Red? How is their egg production?

    I don't have experience with them yet... I have some on order though. The original Buff was used to develope the Bourbon Red, then I think the Buffs went extinct. The Bourbon Red was used for creating the Jersey Buff of today. Kevin Porters site shows the Bourbon Red being toms 33 lbs, hens 18. For the Jersey Buff he shows toms at 28 lbs, hens 15. So it looks like the Buffs are a little smaller?
