The Jersey Giant originated in New Jersey during the 1880s from Black Javas, Dark Brahmas and Black Langshans. Black Giant chicks are black with white wing tips, chests and abdomen. They have single combs and clean, yellow legs and feet. The adult plumage is entirely black but doesn’t have the same sheen as Black Austrolorps. They have large rectangular bodies and black legs and feet that are yellow underneath. They are considered a general-purpose breed, but because of their large body size, they are a relatively poor choice for egg production.
Hatched and shipped by Mt. Healthy Hatchery, a third generation family owned and operated poultry business. From their humble beginnings in the 1920’s, Mt. Healthy Hatcheries has grown to produce over 4 million chicks, ducks and game birds annually. Their mission is to hatch America’s healthiest chicks!
These are day-old chicks. 1 pack = 10 birds.
