Must be fed a complete diet of layers until the come into lay ( as they eat so little any deviation from their diet and they have a tendency to go off lay or not come into lay) Once established and in lay a small amount of treats can be offered at the end of the day.

  • Suits commercial, retail or niche market egg producers or hobbyist wanting different coloured eggs.
  • 320+ pure white eggs in the first year.
  • Excellent economic and production efficiencies.This commercial strain of White Leghorn is one of the most productive birds available, if not the most.
