Brown Leghorn

$2.30$3.85

Brown Leghorn chickens are very athletic, mature early, are hardy, non-sitters and lay very nice large/X large white eggs.  Leghorns are good layers of white eggs, laying an average of 280 per year and sometimes reaching 300–320.  They have a good feed-to-egg conversion ratio.  This chicken breed is great for free range chicken farming or organic free range chicken eggs. Leghorns rarely exhibit broodiness and are thus well suited for uninterrupted egg laying. The Leghorn is a light breed that matures quickly and is not considered a viable meat producer.  Leghorns are active and efficient foragers and are one of the best for free range chickens that can avoid predators.  They typically avoid human contact and tend to be nervous and flighty.
