The White Jersey Giant chicken was originated in Burlington County in the State of New Jersey during the 1880’s. A good heavy breed but slower to grow than some breeds before surpassing them in weight and size. It is the largest of the dual purpose chicken and excels as a meat chicken. These chickens were admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1947 and both varieties noted for willow colored or nearly black legs and toes. The chicks are Smokey gray but feather out white.

    Well worth it!

    Bought 4 Jersey Giants in February 2019. They are definitely GIANTS! The rooster is very protective which is what I wanted. If you are on the fence about buying some, just buy it already before I do!

    White Jersey Giants

    I am new to this breed and I just love them! They are beautiful! I ordered all females but ended up with a rooster and I couldn’t be happier!! He is big and gorgeous and doing such a great job keeping the girls in line. And he’s pretty quiet for a rooster! I will definitely be ordering more in the future!

    Great service

    I’ve always ordered from McMurry Hatchery for 18 years. Had intended to order 50 Jersey Giants but missed the order time So decided to try your company. Very friendly service over the phone and your catalog was excellent info on different breeds. Ist order of black jerseys then 2nd order of white. Black are now laying brown eggs daily. Beautiful breed little skittish at first but now come up to you. Would definitely recommend your hatchery and am now a dedicated buyer. Keep up the great service

    Love this breed!

    I purchased 3 white hens and 1 white rooster. I was very pleased with Cackle Hatchery’s shipping and quality of the chicks. Excellent! I was concerned that the rooster would be aggressive, but he is very cool! Very beautiful birds and I give Cackle Hatchery 5 starsxxxxx

    Just love my Jersey Giants

    The Jersey Giants i ordered from you are just over eight months old now. Lost one to a hawk, the rest are all healthy and gentle, and maybe still growing.
    They are beautiful birds. Wish i had gotten a rooster, too.

    Love the jersey giants

    Ordered 25 then ordered 25 more. Only lost 1 in transit. Have 6 Roosters rest hens. Great egg layers. Little skittish at first but hens will come to you now Roosters stay couple inches away. Hoping to have a few that will get bigger. Have black and white ones. Black is beautiful

    White Jersey Giants

    I bought 40 I was sent 43 with vaccination
    and I lost one! And it is worth the extra time to feed them out and the best tasting chicken you can eat I think.
    We use a instant pot and this chicken makes the best stock it is rich and yellow.

    Love my Jersey Girls

    I’ve had my Jersey Giant hens for nearly 8 months now and I love them! They’re super sweet chickens, but seem a little timid compared to my other breeds. They’re a nice full bodied chicken that lay light brown eggs.

    Smoky and alert

    Hi I ordered 3 p and 1 rooster. I love Cackle for marking the head of the rooster. I like him a lot, so he is always noticing me, and I will place feed in my hand and he will jump on and eat. Of course the first time I initiated it, but soon after, every time I stick my hand in the brooder, he is noticing, he does like to jump in my palm when I go to the brooder. I received 1 extra, I think. Not sure but I do have another extra chick that looks like the White J Giant. I’ll see.

    White Jersey Giant fluke?

    I was the proud owner of a White Jersey Giant (WJG) cockerel from Cackle back in April 2015 with my mixed flock of chicks. Unfortunately, his temperament and voice weren’t per the standard. He was becoming stunningly beautiful, but with a squeaky, high pitched voice and the poor thing was terrified of everything. Later, it turned out he had a tumor in his throat and died at 8 and a half months.

    I’m hoping his condition was a fluke and I will have WJGs from Cackle again, as he really was developing into a beautiful bird and my other birds from Cackle of different breeds are doing very well.

    I mentioned this problem to their Facebook account and received a warm and caring response from their customer service. I will update my review with the new WJGs once I’ve had them a while!

    Website Comment

    WOW!!! After placing my order, I did the two virtual tours on your website. UNREAL and AMAZING come to mind. You have some kind of operation! Very impressive. I have a small incubator setting in my garage that I’m scared to use for my parrot eggs, and see you guys hatching thousands each week like clockwork is awesome! I wanted to add that ordering on your website was as easy as anything I’ve done online. I can’t wait to receive my order. Thanks again.

    Cackle Hatchery

    First off, I’ve been exceeding happy with my chicks, poults and ducklings i received on April 11 from Cackle Hatchery. All were alive when I received them. I’m also extremely pleased with the after delivery service I received. After receiving my shipment, I read on your instructions you shouldn’t raise day old/week old ducklings with chicks or poults. When I called I was greeted by a polite and pleasant lady who informed me why you don’t raise ducklings with other poultry. And more importantly I want to thank you for hatching healthy chicks, duckling and poults. Also the great before and after service you provide.

    My chicks arrived today. I am so very happy with them. They arrived no worse for the trip and immediately adjusted to their new surroundings. I’ve purchased chicks from other online hatcheries and yours seem more “alive” than the others. I’m very happy with them.

    Chicks you sent me

    You sent me some beautiful birds that are either Delawares or Delaware/Hamp cross. Those birds are the biggest so far. And there is a huge pure white female that may be a Jersey Giant. She is also the largest. They are real nice.

    As you can see I live in Puerto Rico. My chicks were sent Wednesday and arrived today Friday. All of them alive and in perfect condition. Thank you very much. It has been a pleasure doing business with you and will definitely will do business again.
