    Welcome! Glad you're here!:wee
    Do you want to know where to get them, or what kind of white egg layers to get?

    Hi Kylie and welcome to BYC :frow We're so happy you've decided to join us:ya

    What part of the world are you in. I have non-industrial Leghorns and Barred Hollands for white eggs. Are you interested in production breeds or heritage breeds?

    Like rjohns39 said, it depends on your goals. If you want a really great egg layer, go for leghorns. If you are more into showing or pets, or just pretty birds, there are lots of options, such as polish.

    climate and housing, management style play big factors in appropriate choices.

    Is anyone shipping now, or is it too cold
    I'm looking to help out my over a month broody hen
    My preference is egg laying, so the non-industrial Leghorns sounds perfect to me

    But we're in Central Coast CA, near SLO

    TiA,
