    Hi, I found a supplier of danish leghorn fertile eggs. I want some white eggs so am looking to hatch some leghorns. Is there a difference between danish leghorns (which is what they are) and the standard leghorn that lays the white egg for commercial purposes?

    Thanks

    Danish leghorns are a sub-variety of leghorns developed in Denmark. Like all leghorns they are good layers of white eggs.
