Valley Hatchery is delighted to offer the esteemed Brown Leghorn Chicks, a breed renowned for its distinguished history and prolific egg-laying abilities. Originating from Italy and admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1874, these chickens are a visual delight with their multicolored plumage of brown, orange, and contrasting black. They are robust and resilient, making them perfect for various climates, particularly in areas with four seasons. While they are well-suited to seasoned chicken keepers due to their flighty nature, the Brown Leghorns are a valuable addition to any flock.

In terms of egg production, the Brown Leghorn hens lay eggs at a rate comparable to their White Leghorn counterparts, averaging between 220 to 300 extra-large white eggs per year, with some hens exceeding this range. The males average a weight of 6 pounds and females about 4.5 pounds. These chickens are not just prolific layers; they also have a significant historical footprint. First brought to North America in the 19th century and later crossbred with Minorca chickens, they contributed significantly to the growth of the commercial poultry industry.

Brown Leghorns are excellent egg layers, producing around 280 eggs annually, and in some cases, up to 320 eggs. They are known for their non-broody nature, ensuring a steady supply of eggs. These birds are athletic, mature early, and are hardy, making them a great choice for free-range environments. They are not typically used for meat production due to their light build. Their active foraging behavior and ability to evade predators make them one of the best breeds for free-ranging. However, they tend to be nervous and shy away from human contact.

At Valley Hatchery, we ensure every Brown Leghorn Chick comes with a live arrival guarantee, reflecting our commitment to the health and well-being of our chickens. With a lifespan of about 5 years, which can be extended with proper care and a low-stress environment, Brown Leghorns are an excellent choice for both their beauty and productive capabilities.
