Leghorn's are a light breed that lay a very generous size white egg, and whom are widely renowned for their laying abilities..
Leghorns are prodigious egg-layers laying up to 300 eggs in their first years, and perhaps one of the best known breeds of chicken the world over (more especially the white variety) which produce the majority of the world's white eggs..
The breed originated in Italy, but most of the other color varieties were developed in Great Britain, America and Denmark.
While not as docile as their larger cousins, we have found the pretty blue verity of Leghorn (which is what we choose to keep here @ Poultry Valley) to be both a delight to watch as well as very productive eggs layers. We have found them to be friendly, inquisitive, great foragers and they funniest characters we have the pleasure of owning!
We keep these guys in the rarer seen blue colour only (which will also produce a few splash & black coloured offspring as well).
Our blue line are far more quiet in nature to their brown & white cousins, and have proven themselves to be a great source of entertainment here at Poultry Valley, becoming one of our very favorite breeds and promoting themselves as being very inquisitive chatty characters, and far more friendlier & relaxed than any of the other coloured Leghorn varieties we have had here in the past!
An excellent choice if you want great layers with an almost seemingly complete lack of broodiness, and less flighty once mature
than most of the other lighter breeds..
Like any blue poultry, when breeding blue birds the resulting chicks do not all hatch out to be blue, no matter what the breed, you will get 50% blue, 25% black & 25% splash hatching out, this is the same with any blue poultry including laced breed varieties as well, however with the blue leghorn it is not unusual to get the odd cuckoo colour pop out as well from time to time. .
