Didn't realize there was a silver Leghorn.  I knew of the white and brown leghorns.   Do they lay in the winter?  My white leghorns are producing pretty well this winter.

Several white leghorns, golden seabrights, 1 black langshan rooster, 1 white crested black Polish rooster, other mixed breeds, and Peking ducks.

ep That is one beautiful rooster(are the hens a brownish color or is that the light?).  How's their temperment?  Are they as flighty and nervous as the Whites?

The hens are actually a Grey color, with a rusty colored chest.

I was actually pretty surprised at how tame the hens were, but the rooster took a while to catch.

Darn! What a shame they are bantams! I have nothing against bantams mind you...it's just that the DH has said full sized chickens or nothing at all! sad He's a real kill joy, ya know?! hmm That roo is just spectacular!

ooh they are lovely!  Unfortunately I live in Australia, so out of the question for me to get some from you... but I love them anyway!

At home in Melbourne with my DH, DS, DD, two cats, 2 Hamburghs, 3 Barnevelders and 4 Australorp chicks (hatched 8-9th November).
