    Thought I would add they are Leghorn leghorn's are the plural
    There is also the exchequer and millie Fleur but neither are an accepted color as of yet...so can't be shown as one but still considered as a leghorn within the breed...like the new lavender chickens many breeds have them but not an accepted color for most.

    Quote:Actually since we're correcting grammar Leghorns is the plural, Leghorn's is the possessive & since it's a proper noun it should be capitalized. .

    I have never seen a Golden Duckwing Leghorn.

    I'd love to see a pic if anyone has one.

    [​IMG] better said..although I wasn't trying to correct the grammar...I personally don't like the complicated English language but to help a newer chicken owner so when they are talking to someone they will have it ..there is always the debate on how to pronounce it-now that varies a lot I have found on where you live [​IMG]
    So hopefully you didn't take it as a correction in the English language but from one leghorn lover to another a tip..they are wonderful birds to have around.
