Black Jersey Giants
Black Jersey Giants are a heritage breed of chickens. We first saw them at a pioneer village. They are very big (as the name implies) and have black feathers (which the name also implies). An -wonder of all wonders- they originated in the Jersey area! What a surprise! They are a dual purpose bird with great tasting meat, and nice brown eggs. They look very pretty roaming around the barnyard, especially the roosters with their big red combs and shiny black feathers! We have had great luck with them, so I recommend them to anyone in search of a dual purpose bird that really is dual purpose!
