    This Spring were getting three more chickens.. YAY! But my mom and dad say they want an all white one.. so I found Leghorns. Are they nice? and I found some cool looking ones! ^^ But which ones are nice and get along great with poeple, chickens and love to be cuddled?
  2. are you talking about the leghorns or just white birds in general?im partial to the white rocks for an all white bird.

    Leghorns are not cuddly. I raise them.

    White cochin girls are just about as sweet as they come.

    Quote:Agree 100%! My White Rocks are wonderful, friendly, curious ladies. I don't like Leghorns at all, they are flighty, aggressive and very standoffish(at least in my experience).

    I have 5 white leghorns. They are very friendly birds, but if pampered too much, they become extremely entitled. [​IMG] The one I handled the most squacks whenever she wants to be held or let out. But, she is also very smart. I've managed to clicker train her in a way. She even comes when called. I think it really depends on how much you handle and raise them yourself.

    They come in white, are super sweet, cold hardy, and mine are good layers too

    Quote:Ditto on that. Ameraucanas come in white, and are VERY friendly and pet-like, especially the roosters. The only downside is that if you only want to order chicks from a hatchery or get them from a feedstore, you won't find white Ameraucanas there. [​IMG]

    Otherwise - Leghorns are anything but friendly and cuddly.
