I know Leghorns are layers. The fact is though all chickens are edible. IF you keep chickens for mainly just eggs and you want to refresh your flock by hatching your own chicks, wouldn't it make sense to raise the extra cockerels as fryers? Murray McMurray sells the frypan special as all cockerels to be processed between 16 and 20 weeks. So for a homestead wouldn't these birds make good sense? Good foraging... lays tons of eggs on less feed and when you hatch out chicks to replenish your hens you hope for some good cockerels for fried chicken. Back at the turn of the 20th century many leghorn cockerels were sold as fryers. So question is... I know they won't be big old roasters, but for small homestead folk looking for eggs and a very efficient foraging breed... why not the leghorn as a dual purpose breed?
