Its Leggern.  Raised 100's of them in my lifetime so far.
I would probably have to say if you call it a LegHorn you might be a Yankee...... smile

That's what I say too, but being in the South I get some weird looks.

When I was a kid we had this toy, I think it might have been a cash register??? Anyway, on the number pad it had the cartoon characters and one of them was Fog-horn Leg-horn so that's where I learned the word.

One thing is for sure. The price of a dead hen is a dead pred.

Although I pronounce it leghorn, (being raised watching Foghorn Leghorn Saturday mornings) I've read that the correct pronunciation is leggern.

Yeah you would pronounce it LegHorn if you were drinking a bottle of POP! haha..

I can't believe all the southerners on her bashing Yankees for how we talk, especially those of us from Pennsyltucky. Seriously, we oughtta burry the hatchet. Yinz can come up for a pop and hoagie. After we rid up the mess, wull go down to the crick for a swim. Ocourse, we might hafta crawl through the jaggerz to git to the crick.

Honestly, I thought I was making progress talking like the TV rather than my Pap.
