    Does anyone have these...I am getting one along with an EE...I have a brown leghorn, a buff orpington, and a Americauna. I just hadn't heard of the Californial whites..so if anyone has opinions I'd love to hear them.

    California Whites are great layers of white eggs - non setters. They're a hybrid using Leghorn blood, basically white and may have a few black specks.

    They are a lot like a leghorn. They have been bred to be thrifty and excellent layers.

    To me they are just like a leghorn... flighty as all get out. I've yet to get a tame leghorn out of about 30 of them. My California white mixed into the bunch and the only distinguishing marker was that she had a few black feathers. Great egg layers though.
