    My little white leghorn does great in the winter here. And she is a great free ranger.

    Hi, here is my araucana / white leghorn cross (I have ×2) - dad was a lavender araucana, mum was a WL. They lay a lovely blue egg IMG_20190121_205805_600.jpg

    I have white leghorn hybrids called whitestars. They're just over 4 years old and are the best layers I have. They lay almost everyday and throughout the winter months. I have a white araucana rooster that I want to cross with them to hopefully get some lovely big blue eggs!
