This very heavy white variety of the Jersey Giant breed was developed from white spots of the Black Giants, and is a comparative newcomer to the ranks of purebred standard chickens. As the name implies, it is primarily a meat bird of extra large frame. A little slower to mature than Rocks, Reds, and other more common heavy breeds, it will eventually surpass them in size and weight. Yellow skin color and white plumage make an easy fowl to dress. Distinctive features in addition to size are the dark willow color of shanks and toes, and the very dark brown eye. Mature hens are very large and good layers of brown eggs. Baby chicks are a real smoky gray varying from almost black to quite light. The adult birds have a tendency to show some dark or gray ticking on an occasional feather, and both the chick and adult color are the result of the fairly recent development of this variety from the Black Giants.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Customer Product Reviews
Last spring I ordered five different heavy brown egg laying breeds. As a last minute thought I added three White Giants. Though all the hens are sweet, these are exceptionally so. They were the last to lose their "peep" and even a year later they mostly coo rather than cluck. They are curious, friendly and calm. Even though they are listed as "not at all likely" to set, I have one that has been broody for about six weeks. I have another shipment of chicks coming in a few weeks and I'm going to have her sit with them. I can't recommend this breed enough. Order some and you won't be sorry!
We bought 100 day old White Jersey Giant chicks 7 months ago. We still have 95. They are so huge compared to our adult Rhode Island Reds. Yesterday we found 2 large pullet eggs in the first pen, we measured them up to a white store bought large egg and they are the same size. Then we found another one this evening at 4:00 p.m. when feeding them, another was trying to lay one too. We weren't expecting any eggs for awhile yet from what we have read, so we were pretty excited about it. And the chickens are so beautiful. Thank you very much for the good service and healthy chickens.
I ordered 12 chicks and in just 8 weeks they are huge. I can't believe how massive these guys are. I am extremely pleased with the health and breeding of these chicks. They have the sweetest disposition. It is great to call out to them and have them all run to me. A few of them have already started crowing. The comments say they mature slower, but these guys don't seem to fit that mold. They are amazing. Thank you.
I have ordered chicks from other hatcheries for myself and also dealt with other hatcheries in working for a feed store, and you have surprised me with your speed and competence. I received a confirmation email when my payment was received, emails saying when my chicks had shipped, and even a text message when they shipped! I cannot believe how fast I got my chicks, less than 6 hours after the text message, my post office was calling me to come pick up my chicks! It was amazing. I have to say I was not even prepared for them yet, using my past experience I had believed I had much more time! In my mad dash to the feed store with the chicks sitting in my truck, I let everyone at the store that I talked to know where I got these chicks from and how incredibly fast I received them. I also got two extra Giants, a white and a black, in addition to my free exotic chick. One little Fayoumi hadn't made it when I opened the box, and a Red Leghorn didn't make it through the night, but other than that these guys are energetic and doing wonderfully. Thank you for your speed, accuracy, and customer service. I will definately be recommending Murray McMurray from now on.
McMurray, I purchased 15 White, and 15 Black Giants. They are now 5 weeks old and cute! Thank you so much for these amazing little guys! They will definitely be happy roaming around our farmstead for the rest of their lives!
Dear,Murray Mcmurray Hatchery Last year I purchased 25 of your White Giant hens and I am very pleased with them.They are a pleasing site to look at,they also lay enough eggs to feed the family and even relatives!My grandmother always likes to see a dozen or more big beautiful brown eggs brought in everyday.Ive had chicks for as long as I can remember,I am now 14 and I plan on having them for the rest of my life.
