All Leghorns were originally brought to North America in 1853, this breed was referred to as Italians as they were brought over from Tuscany. The Leghorn was also the inspiration for the very famous cartoon character, Foghorn J. Leghorn. The White Leghorns are the most productive white egg layer and are used in commercial egg production all over the world. This breed is completely covered in solid white feathers and most will have single combs. They will lay about 250-300 eggs annually. They have been a favorite for commercial egg production due to their smaller size and over the top egg production. The White Leghorn is not considered a broody hen, so most of these eggs would have to be incubated. This classic breed does not get as big as a lot of other standard breeds. Females may only reach 3-4 pounds and roosters about 5-6 pounds. These active and independent birds do very well foraging and tend to be more active then a lot of other breeds.
