I would love to try some Pearls. I am sure they are as good as "billed". I am in a very cold climate (Colorado mountains) and am concerned about comb frost bite. How can that be prevented? How bad is it for the bird? How well does this bird look out for itself (compared to the R.C.?
The white leghorns do have a large comb. You can coat the comb with vaseline to help prevent frostbite. They are active and do well with ranging, but white colored birds tend to attract preditors.
What age do they start laying?
Pearl White Leghorns generally begin laying at 15-18 weeks of age.
What is PEAC and what do the other acronyms stand for?
The PEAC refers to the males. P is for pullet/female, S is for st. run/unsexed, and the C is cockerels/males. So when a customer places their order we know which sex they are wanting.Show all Questions and Answers
