    All I can tell you is there is a such thing as a leghorn bantam. If you don't already, I recommend going to a local poultry show and going to the SCCL (single comb clean legged) class and looking for leghorn bantams. Look closely! I hope this helps.

    Banana Hen nailed it. Leghorn Bantams are actually pretty popular. They're every bit as good of layers as the Large Fowl are too (at least the ones I had were). Actually almost every Large Fowl breed has a bantam version.

    Edit: You might also find them in the Rose Comb Clean Legged bantam section if they're Rose Comb Leghorns.

    Thanks! I have seen them before, and know somebody who owns a few.
