IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION: Eggs are collected fresh on Mondays from our breeding flock and shipped Tuesdays by USPS Priority Mail or FedEx. Hatching Eggs are labeled with breed code to help with ID during incubation. Eggs can be shipped year-round, but please use your own discretion when ordering during extreme weather. We guarantee that your eggs will arrive unbroken, but will not guarantee your hatching success because of the many variables with shipping, incubating and hatching. Breakage must be reported upon arrival.
Light Brown Leghorns lay a prolific amount of white eggs and are wonderful foragers. This breed is active and is well-suited for free-range environments. Light Brown Leghorn hens are brown with an orangish head and back, while the roosters heads are orange-red, shading to golden yellow toward the shoulders, and then deep, orange-red over their backs. Their tails, wings fronts and breasts are black. This breed is a great choice to hatch if you are wanting dependable production of white eggs and active foragers.
