Truly Pastured, Free-Roaming, Heritage Hens

  • Brown Leghorn

  • DSC02956
  • There are numerous colors of leghorns. The Brown shares the same characteristics as the Pearl Whites that are in our flock. At a glance they resemble the color of some of our Americauna hens, as well as a breed called Welsummer. The giveaway is in the comb. Brown Leghorns have a large, floppy comb. The Welsummers have a shorter, straight comb. Both lay large brown eggs, although the Welsummer eggs can be speckled. We love all of our Leghorns.
