Exchequer Leghorn

My Exchequer Leghorn are maybe the most striking birds on the farm.
Their black and white feathers with yellow legs and vibrant red combs really stand out in the spring against the green grass.

Temperament wise the leghorn are a little flighty, yet they will eat from my hand.
The hens lay large white eggs, and they lay a lot of them! It seems sometimes in the summer that they lay twice a day.

This is an extremely healthy and hearty breed. I have had them for several years, and I don't think I have ever had a sick one. Chicks pop out of the eggs at a full run, ready for life.
