or the Ideal 236 pullets? I want to up the egg production for next spring and was looking at the LH's. The Danish just look very pretty as opposed to the straight white bird. And for the 236 if you've ordered them, do they really lay like banshees or just a normal LH?

Nope. I thought about them, but I don't really like the large single combs so I orded the rosecomb brown LH. They are turning out to be really nice looking. Not laying yet, but I got them towards the start of summer so they are not old enough.

I ordered just ONE ideal 236. I also ordered a white all white leghorn*- (*-which I think is just a goofy name for a white leghorn...correct me if I'm wrong about that)

They are both a little over a week now. They are just as cute as can be. But I have no experience with the egg part yet with them. I'll letcha know in about 20ish weeks tho -9/

I was wondering if there was a secret code being typed or something.

I think the Danish are really pretty. I have a white leghorn roo who is the goofiest dingbat out there. His name is Cherry Bob if that tells you anything.

To get white leghorns from Ideal, you have to order white only white or they will substitute their Ideal 236 or california greys (says so on the descriptions in small print).


The leghorns (I have white only white also) started out okay, kinda crazy in the brooder at a few weeks old but once let out to range they will walk around you as long as you don't try to pick them up. Since they are reaching egg laying age, I'll be putting them in a pen to restrict where they'll be laying (preferably in nestboxes). I ordered two of the RC Brown LH roosters, one is larger than the other. The larger one is cocky around "strange" chickens (hackles & tries to pen fight), but is fine with the group he grew up with. The smaller one is usually found right under your feet come time to feed or toss out any treats.

They can fly too, like no one's business. They love to perch on things high up. I can already tell I'll need some sort of enclosed run until they get used to roosting in the coop.
