    were no longer getting eggs; i am making something with eggs, and needed some, so i borrowed some from my friend, whom is still getting some. we went into his coop. i didnt get a pic, but he had a huge, monster-sized hen. she was maybe up to three times of the size of our roosters. if i had another look, i might go as far as saying she was maybe the size of these geese. ahe was pure white, but not like shiny white. more like a slight off-white color. id like to have some of these birds if someone could help me identify the breed!

    For a giant chicken, my first guess would be a white Jersey Giant.

    A picture would help. Its difficult to tell the breed of a chicken without a photo-- maybe your friend could send you a photo and you could put it on here?

    Maybe a White Jersey Giant? A photo would help know for sure.
