    I'm looking to get 6 white egg layers. The Pearl White and California White Leghorns seem to be the most prolific layers. Does anyone have experience with either breed? Peace in the flock is a concern also.

    I have McMurray's Pearl White Leghorns and I like them right well.

    They are high-speed girls though so feed them right if you want their best production. Lowball their protein intake and you'll have feather picking problems.

    we've had leghorn before & they were good egg layers, we did a lot of research about the different breed of egg layers & found that leghorns are good egg layers. we're going to get some the next time we order chicks. we've had leghorns with RIR & delawares & ducks. Good Luck
