The Leghorn is a breed of chicken developed in Italy.
White Leghorns are among the most popular commercial strains of layer chickens worldwide, there are number of other Leghorn colours but the most common in NZ are white, brown and black.
They lay a medium - large white egg and rarely exhibit broodiness.
Leghorns are active and efficient foragers. They typically avoid human contact and tend to be nervous and flighty.
