    Is there any interest in eggs next spring from these little guys?

    Didn't realize there was a silver Leghorn. I knew of the white and brown leghorns. Do they lay in the winter? My white leghorns are producing pretty well this winter.

    [​IMG] That is one beautiful rooster(are the hens a brownish color or is that the light?). How's their temperment? Are they as flighty and nervous as the Whites?

    Quote:The hens are actually a Grey color, with a rusty colored chest.

    I was actually pretty surprised at how tame the hens were, but the rooster took a while to catch.

    Darn! What a shame they are bantams! I have nothing against bantams mind you...it's just that the DH has said full sized chickens or nothing at all! [​IMG] He's a real kill joy, ya know?! [​IMG] That roo is just spectacular!

    ooh they are lovely! Unfortunately I live in Australia, so out of the question for me to get some from you... but I love them anyway!
