Hi there! I have a question and wondering if anyone would be helpful enough to answer it. :)
I right now I have one RIR and one Easter Eggger. I also live in Ohio (we have hot summers and cold winters). I was wondering if it would be a good idea to get a Leghorn chicken consider we live in Ohio. Can Leghorns handle cold winters and hot summers?
Thank you :)

I live in Wisconsin, here are my leghorns after their first winter. I also have a Brown leghorn who does excellent up here. They are not extremely cold hardy but they do well in the heat. I had no leghorns die this winter.

Their combs usually do alright.
