Leghorn Hybrid chickens are excellent layers of white eggs around 300 + per year) with a superior feed-to egg conversion ratio and Excellent liveability.
Leghorns rarely exhibit broodiness and are thus well suited for uninterrupted egg laying.
The Leghorn chicken is a light breed that matures quickly. Leghorns are active and efficient foragers.
They are wonderfully low maintenance and adapt easily to various climates and surroundings.
Being the prolific egg-layers that they are though, these gals may need some supplemental protein due to the fact that their bodies convert the protein from their feed into egg producing fuel and thus, their lovely feathers will need some protein TLC. thay begin laying anywhere from sixteen weeks to twenty-two weeks of age versus the point of lay of other breeds which can be twenty-four weeks or even longer.
