This chicken is supersized! The Jersey Giant, as its name implies, was developed in New Jersey and is a true giant of the chicken world. Although created as a dual-purpose fowl (valued for both meat and eggs), it isn't used on commercial farms because it takes 6 months for them to grow to full size, whereas commercial strains can reach their desired size as early as 5 weeks of age. The Jersey Giant is good-natured and hens are decent brown egg layers.
Adult birds are massive in size with mature roosters weighing in at 13 lbs, hens 10 lbs, and capons capable of reaching 20 lbs.
