Jersey Giant Chickens
Two Heritage chickens, about 3 lbs each, wrapped individually
Good Shepherd Ranch is known for its turkey, but it produces
genetically pure and delicious chickens too. These chickens are
like the ones your Grandparents might have known and require a
cooking technique that is low and slow.
Frank Reese chose this breed, the Jersey Giant, to illustrate
the diversity of heritage chicken breeds. The Jersey Giant is a
slow growing bird (it takes 24-28 weeks to reach market weight, as
compared to the Plymouth 16-18 weeks). A larger chicken with silky
and rich meat, this is the perfect chicken for roasting. Dress it
simply so you can taste its natural flavors.
