    They carry jersey giant genes and black australorps the reason for big and strong breed its for tolerance and resistance here all the year its hot and a breed like this all I know wants them for many years I cross them now all of their offspring are 100% turkens

    Ah ok cool some of the Amber link Black Link and Gold link crosses are large birds and very hardy in general that might be an idea as well! Good luck
