We're about to order some chicks for egg production in our backyard. I've read that White Leghorns are some of the best producers, but I've also read that they can be nervous and/or mean. On the other hand, My Pet Chicken, who we will order from, says on their website that their Leghorns have actually been the nicest and most docile birds in their flock. I asked a local "urban homesteading" expert his opinion, and he didn't think White Leghorns were a good idea for a backyard flock. Now I'm confused! What has your experience been with White Leghorns? And if you don't recommend them, what other breeds lay almost as prolifically as they do? Thanks.
