Black Jersey Giants!

Well, I picked up 10 JGs today. The lady gave 4 extra as there is a chance a few are crosses with black copper & she knew that I wanted pure birds. Two certainly are noticeably crosses at this point. You can tell by some copper feathers on the wings. I believe that they are 4-5 days to just over a week old. One cross has quite a tail already.

Thank you. We are really enjoying them so far. Nothing like babies! It sounds so much like :Spring:

Re: Black Jersey Giants!

Thanks. PD, we have a beautiful gentle young buff orpington rooster that I would give you if you could find some hens. I was going to sell him, but if you want one, I would do that for you. We really like him, but don't have a place for him, sadly.

Thanks , I have two roosters left after the dog had his killing spree , I have posted a ad on Kijiji , but so far one kicker , but a way off and rather pricey . I did ask a guy who was selling chicks for $5 a piece about hatching eggs ( RIR and Barred Rocks ) but he wanted $5 for a egg ? kinda did not make a lot of sense as to why anyone would buy eggs at the same cost as chick's ? Right now I'm just contemplating , not sure if i want any ...............thanks again

Re: Black Jersey Giants!

Did you see the ad on Kijiji for 35 $5 RIR chicks at Oak Bank? Those are nice looking chickens that he has. I talked to him about the possibility of getting some before I found a RIR rooster close to home. He will have chicks available each weekend for a while.

I saw , sent them a email just to see if they sold eggs .......$50 per dozen ? I got my RIR/ Buff ? Barred last year for under half that for eggs ......i'd have to be crazy to pay that if he sells actual chicks for $5 a piece ......had one guy reply to my Buff Ad , but a hours drive if not more , $35 a dozen , but once you consider fuel ? see if maybe the person I bought from last year will respond ?
