    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Having had Black Jersey Giants in the past, they are such a docile breed that I have my doubts that a rooster will be very effective protecting the flock from predators, but if you want a BJG rooster you can get in touch with other BYC members who own Black Jersey Giants at https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/844839/black-jersey-giant-thread. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting your BJG rooster.
