White Leghorn Point of Lay Chickens

A great addition to any flock, perfect  for a mixed free range flock, best kept in a permanent large area rather than a house with attached run, they like their space!
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.

    Brilliant layers. Pure white egg is delicious as soft boiled egg for breakfast. Rarely misses a day. Adventurous and trouble free.

    My first time trying Leghorn as I wanted white eggs, not disappointed, she lays the biggest white eggs despite she is the smallest in the flock. Not as flighty as expected, she is sweet and allows you pick her up and pet her. However I will not try Leghorn again as she is LOUD. Be careful if you have close neighbours, I am not sure if she is the special one but her voice is like a crow, and she is super talkative. None of my other hens like her.
    But if you don’t have close neighbours and want reliable layer of big eggs, Leghorn is definitely one of the best.
