    Polish lay white, but I have found they are not real consistent. My red production girls are right as rain....but they are brown.

    Have heard that Leghorns aren't friendly at all. Don't know if that's true or not.

    I have Anconas. They lay a medium white egg nearly everyday. They are a smallish chicken like my brown leghorn, which also lays a white egg a day. The leghorn's egg is a bit bigger.

    The leghorns I've had are not mean, but they're not friendly and can be a bit skittish.
