These are two breeds I am learning more about because I have some interest in adding one of each to my flock (hens only). Each of these two breeds is obviously gorgeous to look at, and both seem to have extremely gentle & calm temperaments, which is important to me. However, as far as egg production goes, I am reading mixed reviews for both breeds. Some folks seem to think that Jersey Giants/Buff Brahmas are dependable layers along the lines of, say, an Orpington, while other people say that these breeds are notably poor layers. Have any of y'all owned (or do you own currently) Jersey Giant or Buff Brahma hens? How do you find them to stack up to other dual purpose breeds in terms of egg production? When did they start laying for you, how often do they lay, and what do their eggs look like? Thanks!
