Customer Product Reviews
I've kept a small flock of Red Leghorns for 2 years now, and my eggs are virtually free. The birds free range all day and are safe in the coop at night. At all times they have free access to feed, both whole grain and kibble, water, grit and oyster shell. They prefer to forage. My birds are smallish and the eggs are smallish, but the eggs are low cost and very tasty.
I have been extremely impressed with the degree of quality these leghorns were. They were shipped promptly, and were all alive and very healthy and vital when received. They held true to the standard of the breed and have grown better then expected. I recommend this breed and hatchery to everyone.
I have gotten some real show winners, and the Red Leghorns are some of the most beauitful birds. They are among my favorite since childhood.
These Leghorns are the best anyone could have hoped for! They have all the qualities that I ever could have hoped for: gentle, hardy, goood egg layers! Thank you, Murray McMurray!
