Are white leghorns more productive than non-white leghorns?
Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us!
Hi Magfree, white legorns are one of the eight top layers in the country. Poltreeprincess
Are you asking if white leghorns lay better than the colored varieties of leghorns?
Yes, that is what I was wondering.
I have had both white leghorns and brown Leghorns. There is not much difference between them.
From what I have read, the other colors may not lay as well, but are still respectable layers. The one thing all the different colors have in common is the fact that all have very good feed to egg ratios.
I'm not familiar with the colored leghorn varieties but, the whites are excellent layers. You could put "Colored leghorns," in the search box and see what others have to say about them. I'm not a techy person so the I use the searchbox often.
Thanx everyone for the info.
I want good layers but I can't abide white chickens. I live in a predator rich environment and I don't want any Judas's high lighting my flock.
I have both white and brown Leghorns...both lay very well. The only difference i see is the white Leghorn eggs are bigger than the brown
