This rare and beautiful variety has especially handsome plumage. The males are a combination of silvery white and lustrous greenish black. The females are quite different with silvery gray neck, back and wings, and beautiful salmon shading in the breast. They are good layers of white eggs and very vigorous, quick, and alert. Our strain is very carefully selected for correct color and type, which makes them outstanding exhibition birds. If you are looking for something a little different, with good chance of winning in the poultry shows, try some Silver Leghorns. They are most unusual and attractive. Baby chicks are striped like Brown Leghorns, but stripes are a lighter brown and base color more of a grayish cast.
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.

I have 3 Silver Leghorn Cockerels and a Golden Campine Cockerel. They are a gorgeous bird with their lustious silver and white. I also have 26 mixed breeds of pullets and their getting along fine. To date their 7wks old. I reccomend Mcmurray Hatchery to everyone that is new to buying chickens. Thanks Trey
I ordered 2 Silver Leghorn Males and the Brown Egg Layer Special. They are the prettiest little birds you'll ever see. Although they were smaller than the other chicks they wern't intimitated. They are great. Thanks for your help McMurray Hatchery.
