The Jersey Giant is a breed of chicken originating in the USA iin the late 19th century by John and Thomas Black. The intent of the breed was the replace the turkey as the primary meat poultry breed. Named after their origin (New Jersey) and their large size. Jersey Giants are largest purebred chicken breed with cocks  weighing an average 13 lbs. and hens 11 lbs.

The black jersey giant lineage includes were produced by crossing Black javas,, Black langshans, and Dark Brahmas. White Jersey Giants arrived many years later during the year 1947. The Black Jersey Giants are averaging a pound heavier than the White Jersey Giants. For a time, they were raised as broilers by the meat industry, they grow much slower than today's more common meat birds, and are thus not widely used in the industry any longer.

The Black Jersey Giant Chickens lay extra-large brown to dark brown eggs, and lay fairly well for being a large breed. There is also a newer color variation known as the Blue Jersey Giants. Jersey Giants are extremely friendly, as they are good with pets, they like people, and the cocks are rarely aggressive.
