    These are a mixture of Blue and Black Jersey Giants. They arrived about 2 weeks ago.

    I had a catalog from them but it seemed to say maybe they would send them maybe not so I didn't.
    was that what you ordered or just what they sent?
    I wouldn't want giants so am glad I didn't order from them. It takes a long time for the giants to reach full growth and beside I don't like real big chickens.

    I place the order in Nov 2007 and they were delivered June of 2008. They had a cold winter and the birds didn't start really laying until late in the year.

    THey sell out pretty fast.
    I buy all my veggie seeds from them.
    I wanted to get some Manx Rumpies, but I don't want to order 25 chicks now and only get them in a year. I'm not good with waiting. [​IMG]
