    Leghorns tend to be flighty & not like human contact! although you can tame it would take double time than most breeds!

    Are you looking at these breeds because you want white eggs?

    If you you might consider the Barred Holand (I believe Ideal has them & they do small orders)

    There is also the white or molted Houdan!

    They are both calm white eggs!
