    I'm getting 18 JG eggs.
    I have a Brinsea Octagon 20 auto Incubator . I've hatched chickens before , but only Rode Island or Light Sussex . Any tips on GJ out there ?

    They are going to incubate and hatch like any other chicken breed. Here is a good link with some reads on incubating and hatching your babies....

    Also, here is an external page to hatching Jersey Giants. You don't have to do exactly as described here, such as if you don't have a hatcher for example. But just some guidelines for JG's. I suggest you read thru the first link I included first as it has more information over all....

    Good luck with your hatch and keep us posted! [​IMG]
