    I'm wondering how many eggs do the Danish Brown Leghorns lay a day? I have 5 Danish Brown Leghorns and I'm getting anywheres from 5-7 white eggs a day. The rest of my hens are brown egg layers. Wondering if these leghorns lay 2 eggs a day? Anyone with this type breed know anything about their egg laying habits?

    Leghorns generally lay one egg per day for about two weeks then relax for a day and then start the cycle approx 12/14 days on and then 1 day off. I have never had it happen, 2 eggs from one chicken in 1 day, but I'm sure others may have seen it. [​IMG]
