The Brown Leghorn chicken breed is most well known by its iconic appearance. The cartoon chicken character Foghorn J. Leghorn was based on this chicken breed. Its brown, white and gold feathers, bluish-black plumed tail and, for roosters, bright red fan, have made it a favorite heritage breed. You can see this chicken in classic Americana paintings and other artworks. Brown Leghorn chickens are a high-energy breed, and they are also small and good foragers, making them ideal for backyard flocks.
