I wanted to get a dual purpose breed, that would be a good size for meat and a decent egg layer. So I opted for jersey giants, and hatched 4 that turned out to be pullets.Then realised that they were slow maturing, so after a bit of reading, decided to hatch some le bresse as they are big and fast maturing. I had a bad hatch and only ended up with one, which is looking like a Cockerell. So now I am thinking of breeding the jersey giant pullets with the la bresse cockerel. Can anyone tell me anything about breeding these 2 breeds with each other? They are both big breeds but 1 is slow and 1 if fast maturing, what is likely to happen with maturity? What colour will the likely be? And what about the eggs laying, how many eggs can I expect to get from the mixed breeds? Thank you for your help.
