This white bird is born and bred in the U.S.A. and is the most popular breed. Requires zero maintenance and are a good free range bird. Call chicken services! As these ladies are not good Mama’s! They don’t get broody at all and are not good sitters and require friends to sit and foster baby’s or the use of incubators. If you are looking for a cold weather bird this fowl is not the breed for you. Otherwise hardy and good layers of up to 300 plus eggs per year. They are white in color. Calm enough but not fond of touch and are a very athletic busy species. Can serve as dual purpose for meat as well. Cute yellow fuzzy baby chicks mature into all white birds. What is the heaviest egg? Records indicate that a white leghorn hen laid an egg laying a little over one pound! That’s a lot of breakfast!
