    Does anyone have any of the Light Brown Leghorn pullets or hens? I wanted to know if they were laid back or not. Does anyone have any adult pictures of their lt brown leghorn hens they could post for me. Ive beeen to the feathersite website and there was just one that I could really see and it was small.

    How large are their eggs?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    Mine is hatchery stock and very skittish. She gives 3 to 5 medium or small white eggs a week. We had one that had trouble laying from the start and had to put it down. Also had trouble with frostbite, but her comb has come back nicely. I will not get any more though, too flighty for me. I have seen others here who had more mellow ones than mine. Here's the 2 I started with.

    I have 2 that look just like javamama's. They were called Danish Brown Leghorns. Scared to death of people, scream when I pick them up off the roost, but good at spotting flying predators. Lots of big white eggs. No more for me, people say leghorns are skittish like mine are; I want to be able to pick them up/dust them/etc. without panicking them. Roo was beautiful, though, not friendly but not mean.

    Leghorns aren't known for being friendly. I always found them intelligent, active & flighty. Depends what one likes. I think they're great but if one wants chickens to pet they wouldn't usually be a first choice.
