Exchequer Leghorn Chicks

Leghorn chickens are most notable for the huge amounts of big white eggs they lay. The Exchequer Leghorn is no exception. This dynamic bird originated in Leghorn, Italy, and is characterized by the black and white splash of feathers covering their body. 

The word Exchequer is the name for the British Department responsible for taxation and funds. The Exchequer got their name not only from their plumage but also from the revenue their owner's profit from selling their eggs. They are excellent foragers and will glean much of their diet from pasture. Leghorns are active birds and do well with the heat. You can expect your hens to lay at least 5 white eggs per week. 

Average Mature Weight: Roosters 5 lbs, Hens 3 1/2 lbs.
