    Here is mine. I thought up until about three weeks ago that he was a pullet, but now, there's no mistake. He' a roo. I've decided not to eat him. "Pat" is 11.5 weeks old. You can tell how tall he is by fence...each retangle is 4" high. I don't know much about JG's but his beetle green feathers sure are pretty.

    I know there are JG people out there, let me see 'em! I want to know what to expect.

    What a pretty boy! I found out today I have a Black Jersey Giant female, not an Australorp like I thought. Mine is only 10 weeks.

    Thank you very much. There is something about him that I really like too.

    I hope to see more photos here.
     
  4. Give me a few days. I have ONE black and ONE grey. I love my NJG roos.

    I always get the comment "wow, I did not think a chicken could get that big"

    I am now looking for Saipan Jungle fowl, but I do not want the roos.

    I have a red jungle fowl and I need him to be safe.

    I just Googled the Saipan Jungle Fowl. Wow, they have unusual body types. Those loooong strong looking necks and the roos look kinda scary!
