    I have a white leghorn rooster and rhode island red hen. My hen recently took out 4 chicks and i am very curious about how they will turn out. Does anyone have this cross? I would appreciate if you post a pic.

    I don't have any pictures but I can tell you they both are prolific egg layers so the cross that you have is going to be an amazing egg layer ....I've had it.... literally an egg a day once they start producing even through the winter very very low broodiness they won't be too large though somewhere between a Rhode Island red and Leghorn size
