    I LOVE giant chickens/chicken breeds, but I've never owned any of my own, and I just realized, I don't know of any giant breed names in general...

    So what are some of your favorite GIANT chicken breeds? Or you could just list giant breeds so I can google pictures lol

    I would also LOVE to see pictures of your giant breeds if you have any (especially roosters, I'm a sucker for them... if chicken sexism is a thing, I'm totally chicken sexist lol)

  6. I have seen video of that Roo, he is a monster! I think they toted him as being the biggest ever. I am sure there are some bigger but not much. Love the scene of him coming out of the Hen house!

    Standard cochins are big chickens too. English Orpingtons are another.
