Baby Chicks: White Leghorn
|Shipping Week||Availability||Other Breeds Available|
Remember Foghorn Leghorn the cartoon? Yep, this bird one and the same. (Seasoned pros pronounce it like "leggern.") The White is separate from the rest because they lay large, white eggs practically every day! Other varieties aren't nearly so prolific. Whites are said to be nervous, but we've personally found that some White Leghorns are actually quite sweet and very tame! So give one a try and find out for yourself. (In winter, use petroleum jelly on their large comb to prevent frostbite.)
