    We'd like to get a roo and some hens. Tried to post on BST and was denied and directed to the rules. Read the rules and still confused about why I can't post about wanting some chicks, so I'm posting here. We're interested in 1 roo and 4-6 Jersey Giant hens for our 3.5 acres in Western WA. Any suggestions?

    Make sure you put a price in the BST part of the forum. If you do not put a price, I believe that it disallows the post. There also may be a certain number of posts you have to reach before you can post in BST. It is probably one of those two things. Jersey Giants...popular in my state, but way too far to get them out to Washington haha. Very large birds, so-so layers, slow to mature...definitely a show piece though. Roosters are just enormous. Best of luck!

    Not sure if your still looking or not, but I bought my Jersey Giants from Maria @ http://www.mariasjerseygiants.com. They are great people to work with, they call to make sure your ready and available to have them shipped. Also called weeks later to see how I was making out. I would absolutely recommend this breeder. Any questions contact me. :)

    Where in W. WA are you located? I have a 2 year old black Jersey Giant Hen (Leila) in Seattle that I would like to rehome to a good home. She's 11 lbs, beautiful, but just too big for my yard and flock. It's hard for me to part with her because I really wanted her, but I am only allowed 8 chickens so I need to be choosy. I'll only let her go to a good home.

    She hatched in May or June 2012. I got her in September 2012 from BYC member silkiechicken. She got the eggs from Wynette at http://www.adamsonacres.com/. Leila's hatchmates were 2 blue roosters and 2 blue hens, she was the only black.

    She lays XL to XXL large light brown eggs. 5-6 a week in summer. (She laid a 4.5 oz egg a couple of weeks ago. Ouch!)

    Send me a PM if interested.
