    I have 8 of these (pullets) coming next week. I wanted some Leghorns because of their smaller size (eat less/take up less space) and fantastic egg production. I went with the Ideal 236 because the site claims they are the best egg layers.

    Just wondering if anyone else has these and what they think of them? I didn't find very many threads on this breed.

  2. I have one that my 6 year old daughter picked to raise last spring for 4H. Her name is Princess and she's laying lots of decent sized white eggs now. She's TINY though! She weighs nothing compared to my Orp, Maran, or my production red girls... I don't know where she has room for those eggs!
    And she's skittish, but other than that, I would say she's a great little bird.
