Leghorns originated from Italy and have traditionally been used as laying hens. They’re supposed to give you at least 280 eggs a year, but ours has spent so much time being broody, she’s barely laid at all this year. She’s also very flighty and doesn’t like humans at all.
I’m not sure if our leghorn is a true representative of the breed, but I’m fairly certain she’ll be the last one we have in our flock. I need hens who spend time on the nest box for the right reasons.
