'Pearl-white Leghorns McMurray Hatchery Stock: Review'
Young Pearl-white Leghorn Rooster from McMurray Hatchery.
The pearl-white chicks arrived healthy and very active. They had excellent appetites and thrived under our care. They were fed a mix of commercial chick starter and organic extras such as chickweed and clean, clay earth from my organic garden.
We experienced no losses out of about ten pearl-whites (well, eventually a few predators wiped the flock down to three members).
They are typical of hatchery stock, light bodied and pretty scrawny. They have good temperaments and are excellent on feed to egg ratio.
