    The white leghorn hen will produce 325 to 350 a year.(thats per hen) Why the brown only produces 275 to 225 a year. The white leghorn produces 25 to 40 eggs more. They both lay well though.[​IMG]

    Just saying....I hate my 6 white leghorns. They're SO loud, ugly looking, and love to peck and attack me...they're lucky they're great egg layers, because otherwise they would be out. They're just overall hogs....they are top of the pecking order and gang up on all of my little banties....they also hog the food when I refill their feeder. I wouldn't ever get them again, unless I get a pretty one, like an execheur or millie
