Description
 

Red Leghorn Chicken

Red Leghorns are a beautiful and unique variety of the Leghorn Breed. The Single Comb Red Leghorn Chicken became a standard breed of the Mediterranean Class in 1929, and while this is the only variety of Red Leghorn recognized by the American Standard. Like the other Leghorn varieties, the Red Leghorn is a very active bird and a non-sitter, and though it may not perform as well as the White Leghorn, the Red Leghorn is still an excellent layer of White Eggs.

This breed will become more popular as its large white egg laying traits are honed through selective breeding and as people move toward adding more of a color variety to their white egg laying flock. This breed is an excellent breed for exhibition because it does exhibit the physical qualities of prize winning Leghorn chickens with its medium sized comb with five points that are deeply serrated. The breed is similar in stature and plumage to the other Leghorn varieties, but what sets the Red Leghorn from the rest is its unique plumage color.

The Leghorn is a vocal and active bird as well as an excellent forager, and they can often be flighty, avoiding human contact. They have excellent food to energy conversion ratio and require little physical maintenance. These chickens are excellent fliers and will roost in trees if they are raised as free range birds. They are quite active and will enjoy the freedom of roaming free range.
