- Jersey Giants are dual purpose chickens, but they outrival many other breeds as a meat bird. They are an excellent roasting bird when fully mature. The hens tend to lay more eggs than those of other heavy breeds. Their eggs are extra-large in size with color varying from dark brown to light cream. The black plumage has a beautiful green sheen, the eyes are dark brown and shanks and toes black.
