    Does Ideal have these or the equivalent of McMurrays Pearl Lghrns?

    Ideal calls them "white only white" Leghorns. I can't say for sure that they're the same as McMurray's Pearl White, but they should be pretty darn close since there doesn't really seem to be different varieties of white Leghorns mentioned on Feathersite. [​IMG]

    Leghorns are always different... just in genetics though some may lay more than others but there all white leghorns... I can name 3 different types of strains right of the bat.

    Well, I did order a Danish Brown. Out of the leghorns I thought she'd be the prettiest.

    Really are the Leghorns that much better than the Sexlinks? Or are they comparable quantity wise just egg colors are different?
