    Well, I can't say exactly... but in my mom's chicken book it stood a few inches over a RIR...

    Sorry I can't be more of a help... [​IMG]

    Hey BantyMom, my pullet Maggie is as tall as a small turkey and she is not nearly grown, I have heard that they do not stop growing until they are between 18 to 24 months old, I can tell you this they are huge birds and very sweet and they sound like a goose.

    DH want's a JG Roo. I asked him what he was going to do with it, and he said put it in with the girls. I think NOT! Those things are huge. He'll hurt the girls.

    We got a JG gift hen last spring. Grew into a BIG sweetie. She was the biggest and (densest) of the lot. [​IMG]
    Her size didn't protect her tho, she was eaten my our #@!X% neighbors dog.

    I have Jerseys and mine have never sounded like geese. They just sound like big chickens with a deeper voice.[​IMG]

    Yep, I ordered 25 and they will be in Fri. I already have one pullet that's 5 or so weeks old that I hatched out myself too. I ordered the 25 from DblR and last time I ordered Ducks from them they send me 8 extra ducklings. [​IMG]
