    Hello fellow keepers of poultry. Since this is my first post Ill introduce myself. Ive been 'keeping' chickens for nearly 2 years, now. I have Rhode Island Reds, primarily, but I do have one Wyandotte. Im from Va Beach, originally, but currently reside in the western part of NC. Anyway, enough about me...lol. I have a question about 'White Leggers'. My cousin brought 30 eggs for me to put in my incubator after I told him I was about to incubate some of my own eggs. The eggs he brought were White Leggers. He said they lay really well, meaning prolificly, I assume. I cant seem to find any info on these chickens. If anyone knows anything about them and could point me in the right direction or pass along some information Id certainly appreciate it very much. Keep on cluckin'...lol...and for your viewing pleasure I bring you this clip I ran across in my search for White LEggers...
    Take care...Chris

    Thanks for the reply. Now that I think of it it seems quite simple. My relatives here have quite a southern drawl and what probably started out sounding like White Legg'erns (for the leghorns) mutated into White Leggers:D. Case solved...lol..Now I know what Im dealing with. Thanks, again. Take care...Chris
