    Lt. brown Leghorns, Does anyone know how their temperment is? What kind of egg they lay? I have buff Orpingtons that are great and a Dark Brown Leghorn that is a pain in the ass! 3 Bar Rock? that lay GIANT eggs but are buggers.

    I hear leghorns are all flighty, but lay well.

    BTW-- Watch the language. There's lots of kids on this site. [​IMG]

    I have brown leghorns my self and they are only 7-8 weeks and i'm going nuts! Shame on me for not doing my research better before buying them and I'm considering getting rid of them allready. But they are great layers.......I read they lay about 360 days out of the year...white eggs!

    I don't know much about light brown leghorns, but I bet their temprament is about the same.....Leghorns in general or flighty and skittish. I hear the whites are the worst!

    I have one pullet - 10 weeks old now - who I believe is a Lt. Brown Leghorn. So far she is actually pretty friendly. I know this isn't common for her breed, but maybe she didn't get the memo...

    My two brown Leghorns are both flighty. One of them used to be the tamest of my eight chicks, and almost seemed to enjoy being held. Now that she's grown up, she's just as flighty as the other. [​IMG]
