White Leghorn Chickens are one of the top egg-producing breeds, often laying 300 or more large white eggs per year. These chickens were developed in Italy and brought to the United States in 1835. They are likely the most popular breed of laying chicken worldwide. Leghorn’s are very economical because of their high production rate and yet consume small portions of feed. They also mature early, often laying by 20 weeks of age. They are hardy, cold and heat tolerant, non-broody, and are excellent foragers. White Leghorns are a perfect choice for pastured, free-range settings and organic homesteads.
White Leghorns have all white feathers, yellow skin and legs, and a single red comb. White Leghorns are very beautiful birds and are often raised for exhibition as well as for their egg laying capabilities. Contrary to belief, there is no nutritional difference in white eggs versus brown or other color eggs.
Average mature weight: Roosters 5 to 5 1/2 lbs., Hens 4 lbs.
