    I have been around chickens my whole life. I'm looking into breeding some Brown Leghorns. I've had a hard time finding breeders in AZ. I'm looking for show quality blood lines, not from a hatchery. I've never bred show quality birds so I'm looking for any information anyone has to give. Also if you know or have heard of any good breeders in or around Arizona please let me know. Thanks!

    I would suggest looking for some area poultry shows - this is a great way to start identifying breeders in your area who are actively working with the quality of birds you are seeking.

    So I bought two brown Leghorn hens of show quality. Now I just need a rooster.

    Thank you. Sorry I haven't been able to take any pictures. I have been really busy with work. But should be home long enough soon to take some pictures.
