What age do white leghorns start laying??
They usually lay earlier than most breeds. Some at 4 1/2 to 5 months!! They are egg machines for sure !!
I have some too. They better be laying machines because I am not fond of them so far. Spaz out every time the see someone and take off like little roadrunners!
Great egg layers, I have both brown & white prefer the brown, they will start at around 4+ months.
Maybe if you put them in little cages so they can't run all over.....um...nevermind..

Actually, they are still in a small caged area. They are 4 weeks old and we are keeping them in a 10x4 chicken tractor during the day and a large brooder at night. They are always the last ones to be caught when we take them in and out. I hope they settle down.
Leghorns are little spazes, but I get about 6 eggs a week from each one. And that is in their second year of laying to. Nothing can catch them.. not even ground preds when they get scared and fly to the roof of the house... and cringe when a drip of rain water gets you when you walk under the eaves.
