    I have a few chicks from a Jersey Giant Roo over hens hatched from store-bought fertile eggs (leghorn crosses probably).

    What kind of egg production do you think I will get from these chicks?

    Will they be as reliable as the leghorns?

    I am thinking the eggs will be a very light brown...

    Any thoughts?

    They will be great layers, and may be good meat birds (hybrid vigor)
