Beauty without the Beast
Originally these beautiful birds were called Italians, but this was changed over the years to Leghorns.
Its true. The Cocks are friendly and you will be amazed with the beauty! What leghorns do best is lay eggs
This is a lightweight chicken, females reaching only about 4 1/2 pounds at maturity. A mature male will weigh up to 6 pounds.
The exact origins of the Leghorn are unknown. There were several small breeds of land race chickens in the Tuscany region of Italy and from these the Leghorn was born.
They are a busy, intelligent and active bird that likes to forage. They are good flyers and will roost in trees if allowed. They can be a bit noisy as they do like to chat away. This brings life and charm to the farm.
