Can someone tell me how tall a jersey giant will be?
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...
Edited- to edit.
This will give you an idea
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.
Quote:Oh goodness...now I KNOW i have to move! LOL, As if 22 pekins isn't enough 'gooseieness' now I am going to have 26+ JG's and they sound like Geese too?!?! They'll be here next Fri and we only live on a 1/3 of an acre...glad we plan to be on 3-30 acres by march....my neighbors would SURELY have a fit!
26+ JG's and they sound like Geese too?
Lucky you, I would love to have more of these gentel giants
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.
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.
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.
