    I will be building my incubator as soon as I recover from a leg problem. My plan was to buy some Silver Penciled Rocks and one other breed. Was wondering if Jersey Giants would be a good choice?

    I live in extreme SE Louisiana and the heat/humidity here is beyond brutal! Would the Jersey Giants handle these conditions OK?

    FINALLY! I have my first chicks from Leggs and his 2 black hens.

    Leggs is in the background of this picture. He is now 9 months old, and of course, is still growing.

    Hey, Bill - my Jerseys have just begun to lay; only two of my small flock is laying, but hopefully the other gals will begin soon! [​IMG]

    Wynette,
    This is unbelievable! Remember when I hatched Leggs? He was the only egg left in the incubator, and I "forgot," about him?

    Today, day 23 of my hatch, and I had left the bator plugged in, with the intention of cleaning it today. To my surprise I have a Jersey Giant chick just coming out of the shell ! ! ! The egg is just huge, and I am wondering if that is what is happening, causing a late hatch.
