Item Information

Years ago, a small, amazingly productive chicken breed was imported from Italy through the port of Livorno. Leghorns became the Anglicized word for that port and the breed. Supermarket eggs are almost always laid by White Leghorns or hybrids developed from them. Hens lay about 290 eggs every year while eating less feed than most other breeds and begin to lay around 4-5 months of age with adequate daylight hours. Perfect for a family wanting abundant white eggs, Leghorns are nervous nellies that can fly over fences so you will want to plan accordingly. Active foragers, these birds also do well in confinement and are hardy in both cold and heat.

It was a very cold week, and we worried about the health of the chicks, but the 10 arrived in perfect conditions! One week after, they're very healthy, we haven't lost any!

What is "Flighty"?

Asked by: MeFish
Per Hoover's: Flighty refers to the nature of the bird to have ability to lift from the ground in flight. They are not actually flying but do have separation from the ground.

How high can white leghorn fly? Can they fly over a 6ft tall fence?

Asked by: Pinkky
White Leghorns do not actually fly but they can gain lift or jump. A 6 Foot tall fence would contain them

Is there an option to vaccinate the chicks before they are shipped? Mareks/Cocci?

Asked by: oomanny1oo
Chicks are not currently vaccinated for Mareks or Cocci. Cocci can be applied by feeding medicated feed and Mareks is generally not necessary unless it is currently present at your residence. If questions regarding this please call 641-323-6100 and we can help

Can I keep a "Free range" bird in coop instead?

Asked by: MeFish
Placing a chick/chicken in a coop is a form of free ranging as they have grass to range. It offers protection from other animals while allowing room to roam.
