    Hi, I am looking for a large fowl - well, an extra large fowl! I have very small bantams - One is so tiny that she is the size of a large wood pigeon. Her name is Titch, obviously :)

    I am after something very large now in order to have more variety in my flock. Am I right in thinking that a Leghorn is the largest?

    Thanks
    Kelly.

    I have always been told that the largest chicken breed is the Jersey Giant, which comes in black and white! Hope this helps
