I recently bought a few chicks from Pratts Pets in Arizona, they called their Leghorns "Ideal" and they are feathering out a creamy tan rather than white. Does anyone know what hatchery the "Ideal" comes from, i've searched without luck so far.
Girls at the store said they were bred to be larger and heartier that the standard Leghorn. We'd like to track down the lineage but the folks i talked to didn't know much or even the hatchery when I picked them up.

Thanks!

HA, that makes a lot of sense, for some reason that hatchery wasn't coming up in my search.

Mystery solved the Ideal 236 is likely the breed. Thanks!
Now if only they had mature pics of their chicks on the website, so far no luck there. but guessing is half the fun - so why ruin the fun.
