Item Information

Years ago, a small, amazingly productive chicken breed was imported from Italy through the port of Livorno. 'Leghorn' 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. They are perfect for a family wanting abundant white eggs. Leghorns are nervous nellies that can fly over fences.

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

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.
