This variety is rare and unusual. Imagine a rich, brilliant red plumage color combined with a graceful carriage, sweeping tail, white ear lobes, and yellow shanks and toes. This is another fine variety for showing. The hens lay a tinted white egg and are practically non-setters. Chicks are a reddish brown and many have darker specks and markings on the back. Try some of these handsome birds for an interesting and beautiful addition to your flock.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

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!
