    I've read that some bloodlines get exceptionally larger than others. Does any one have personal knowledge or opinion as to what breeders have the overall largest Jersey Giants?! Thanks....

    I've ordered Black Jersey Giants in the past from both Cackle Hatchery and Murray McMurray Hatchery and it seems like the ones from MM tended to run a little larger than the ones from Cackle. However the are both hatcheries and you may be able to get larger ones from private breeders. I would recommend getting in touch with someone at the National Jersey Giant club for your answers. Their website is at http://nationaljerseygiantclub.com/index.cfm/pageid/22. Good luck in finding really big Jersey Giants.
