    I had a couple several years ago. They made normal chicken noises. There are probably quieter breeds.
    My leghorns were real "flighty", nervous, you know. That might have been me. I've had other breeds that were much easier to handle.
    Leghorns are egg making birds though. Maybe you could sell the extra eggs for some cash in your pocket![​IMG]

    My Leghorns are pretty quite. They are nervous and are flighty though. They lay great which makes up for their wild behavior.

    My leghorns are the most uncontrollable flighty things in the world. Sure do lay like crazy though for the first few years of their lives. Are you sure you want leghorns??? They look pretty good till they get all dirty from dust bathing or till it rains.

    My leghorn is probibly my quitess chicken. She is sort of ruff with the other chick though.
  7. We have two leghorn hens 15 weeks old and we love ‘em. They are so adventurous! Always the first to try new things. I think if it weren’t for them the others would still be sitting in the coop wondering how to go out and free range.

    As for noise, they are quiet. Just the usual 'bok bok.'

    I have 4 leghorns, all very nervous and flighty.

    1 is super quiet, she only peeps like a chick until you catch her, then she is very noisey for a few seconds.

    1 is just like my other breeds, normal chicken noises.

    2 are the noisiest in my whole flock, you can look at them and it will set them off.

    I wouldn't suggest leghorns if you have neighbors living close.

    They are pretty heavy layers, but my Rhode Island Reds have them beat for production.[​IMG]

    leghorns from what i have heard are flighty and nervous. I'm sure southern28chick will tell you that she has ideal 236's. she says that those are the most affectionate birds she has. (ideal made their own leghorn breed thing)
