Leghorn Chickens are known for their dependable production of white eggs. They are active birds and the hens rarely want to sit on their eggs. You can expect an average of 280 eggs per year from these hens and because they are active and great foragers, they are a great choice for an organic free-range chicken farm.
The single combed Brown Leghorns we offer are a showy alternative to the White Leghorns kept on commercial flocks. These roosters' heads are orange-red, shading to golden yellow toward the shoulders, and then deep, orange-red over their backs. Their tails, wings fronts and breasts are black. Hens are more brown with an orangish head and neck.
Average mature weight: Roosters 5 1/2 lbs., Hens 4 1/2 lbs.

100% Healthy Chicks Guarantee: If there is a problem with ANY of the birds after pick up you must CALL US IMMEDIATELY so we can help trouble shoot any possible causes for the problem. Review our Chick Care Guide for tips on how to set up their area and proper care. On cold days plan on bringing or purchasing a heat pack (hand warmer) for their travel home. It is highly recommended you have a thermometer in their brooder to observe that the temperature is as recommended by age.
