Farmers gush over their beautiful feathers. Light Brown Leghorns chicks will develop into most colorful females available. They’ll be a beautiful addition to your flock. They’re not just lookers, though. Their coloring gives them a distinct advantage over white hens because their coloring blends in well with the natural environment.
Light Brown Leghorn hens have many other benefits, too.
First, they make great free-range organic birds. They’re fantastic foragers. In fact, they do best in an environment where they have room to move. They’d much prefer to be out roaming around than be confined. They’re the escape artist of the chicken world. These hardy hens are great for hobbyists who aren’t looking to have a cuddly bird.
Second, these lovely Light Brown Leghorns are quick and can fly a short distance. That’s because they’re a lighter bird that’s active. This is a huge advantage to keep them safe from predators.
Finally, you’ll be most excited over how many eggs your 4 lbs. hens will lay! These birds will give you many big, white eggs and you can expect to see upwards of 300 eggs in a given season. Best of all, the hens won’t become broody.
