Leghorn (Non-White)
Leghorns hail from Italy and, like all Mediterranean chickens, they're slim with large combs and wattles, white earlobes, active, good foragers, and good layers of white eggs. None, however, compare to the White Leghorn (which we've made into a separate listing because their egg qualities are so far superior to any other Leghorn).
