With a resemblance to the other preferred commercial chicken, the Jumbo Cornish Cross, White Leghorn chickens are the most common breed found at commercial egg-laying operations. With hens reaching a full size of 3 to 4 pounds, they require minimal feed and display one of the highest egg-laying rates of any chicken, between 280 and 300 a year. White Leghorn chickens are active with a somewhat nervous disposition, though they bear confinement well. Without proper care, their red comb can become frost-bitten in the winter. Order 25 White Leghorn chickens and find many other chickens for sale at Chickens for Backyards.
