White Jersey Giant Chickens, when created, was the result of merging the genetics of several large breeds. This breed grows slowly but eventually are a third larger than most other heavy breeds . This breed has an impressive hen that lays about 240 extra-large eggs annually. When younger, the birds will mature relatively quick, but tend to reach marketable meat weight slower than other breeds. Jersey Giants are noted for their easygoing temperaments. These birds are not aggressive at all, and are friendly with children and adults.
