We had a pair of Black Jersey Giants. Lady and Mike Tyson. We still have Lady but Mike lost his life defending his girls from a fox. By the time I got the gun it was to late. Great protector.

Hi kitz.Thank you, for your help.I think that the 3 and 4 picture , the rooster isn´t good , because of is comb, ins´t like the others.The sole of yours Jerseys are yellow on the bottoms of their feet?
Thank you again.

The APA "standard" calls for the comb to have SIX points....more or less is a deduction in terms of show quality. NOT having yellow on the bottoms of the feet is a disqualifications....so make sure they have yellow on the bottoms of their feet in both the males and females! Finally, standard weight is 13 pounds for Cocks and 10 pounds for hens, I would use the heaviest birds for breeding purposes or those thaty are within 1 pound of the standard.....BIGGER is always better with Giants!:)

this is another great document to consider if breeding Giants;

Orlando, I would NOT be that concerned about the "best" comb until I had the proper body shape, type and weight (overall confirmation) the best I could get. According to the APA this should help you "count points";
