My goal is to have a sustainable flock of DP birds and I currently have 8 hens, BO who will sit, Rocks and one wellie. Plenty of eggs. I added a BR roo early this month. They free range. Free cycle had 2 jersey giant roos about 6 months old. My son got them to process but will give me the larger one who is already larger than my BR and the owner said they had a lot of growing left. He raises them for meat and his free range. I can either add some more hens if needed or process my current roo. I know nothing about Jersey Giants except they are large, feed conversion ratio is not good and they are slow to mature. Can a 6 mo old roo breed my hens? Is there an advantage to having birds this large in relation to predators (fox, hawk, coons, opossum and dogs)? (haven't lost one in a while but did have a dog incident recently). What is their general temperment? Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I will check elsewhere online for info but I want the voice of experience from my BYC friends. Thanks.
