    Hello Chicken Lovers,

    My family and I recently started raising chickens and we have several breeds. We have all brown egg layers but are undecided on which breed to get for our "white" layers. Of coarse, we've heard and read much about the Leghorns but want to try another breed which has a good track record for laying everyday. Any suggestions or comments would be so helpful?

    Thanks

    Wow...Thank you for the quick response. Hopefully within the next few weeks, we're going shopping and will keep the name of these breeds on our list.
    Thanks again!

    Sadly, the past week we've found two of our newly Leghorn hens face-up dead. They have plenty water and feed....We check on them every morning and several times throughout the day. Both times, they were found dead between 10a - 4pm.
    We,re in Florida and it is hot but their custom made coop is what I think large enough and it's under a huge breezy Oak tree. We've had one hen for several weeks and the other one, just a few days. I'm getting a little worried....please share your thoughts #thanks
