    Looking for some opinions on whether Jersey Giants can be mixed in with RIRs in the same coop. Will my RIR hens get beat up? I like the way the blue JGs look.

    I don't think there would be a problem. Will they be the same ages?

    Thanks for the reply. I have one RIR hen that is 4yrs old, and two more that are 3yrs old. I was thinking about getting a few Jersey Giant eggs to hatch. What do you think?

    The auction ends today. If anyone else can voice an opinion about this I'd appreciate it. Wanna be sure before I bid. Thanks

    I have three RIR hens that free range with my giants without any trouble.
