About this breed:
Leghorn chickens make great pets and egg layers. Our Leghorns are a cross between a pure Rhode Island White Hen and a pure White Leghorn Rooster. This cross breed is not as large as the pure breds and are all white in colour and have a nice sleek look. These hens are also lighter in body weight and will eat less, making them more efficient and economical in egg production.
Our Leghorns are normally around 17 weeks of age, but their age does vary.
Leghorn Chickens take longer to begin laying eggs then our popular Isa Brown Breed. Leghorns normally begin laying eggs at about 26 to 28 weeks old, where as Isa brown chooks begin at 22 weeks.
If you cant wait for your chooks to start laying its probably best to stick with the Isa Browns.
Vaccination: Yes our White Leghorn hens are fully vaccinated.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. Out of all the chicken breeds you sell which breed do you recommend as a backyard layer and pet?
A. All three chicken breeds that we sell including the White Leghorns, Black Australorps & Isa-Browns have been selected specifically because they are renown egg layers, but if you want the best egg layers its best to go with the Isa Browns. With regards to other considerations, like temperament etc the 3 breeds we sell are very similar and you are more likely to find more significant differences between individual birds then between the breeds of these chickens.
Q. Are your leghorn hens de-beaked, ie had there beaks trimmed?
A. No, since many of customers prefer their chickens with un-trimmed beaks we only stock chickens with full beaks. Some poultry suppliers do this to prevent their poultry from pecking each other. The birds beaks do grow back ofcoarse, but it can make it difficult for trimmed birds to forage and eat larger grains until their beaks grow back. Note - This is not a guarantee that our poultry will always have un-trimmed beaks, but we always do our very best to source such poultry.
Q. I recently bought a White Leghorn and Black Australorp but they dont seem to meet the club standards that ive read online?
A. The club standards you are referring to relate to breeding poultry breeds for show competition. The birds we sell are egg laying stock and are not showbirds. Unless you are looking to compete in show competition these club standards are not relevant to you. Please note that these standards are only cosmetic and do not relate to the health of the bird.
