    The Ideal 236 is a production egg layer if I'm not mistaken, special breed of Ideal's.

    These previously were called Ideal 386, which is a breed specifically by Ideal. They look like White Leghorn but may have a little black spot here or there. I have several of them. They are laying machines. You will love them.
