Age: Day+ old

The California White Leghorn

is primarily an egg laying breed. They are a cross between a White Leghorn hen and a California Grey Rooster.  They are considered a commercial hybrid. They grow fast and hens may lay about 300 big white eggs per year. They are a hardy chicken that may exceed the White Leghorn in laying ability and longevity.

Appearance / Characteristic

The California White is a vocal chicken and active bird as well as an excellent forager. They are a fast growing bird, but due to their vigor they may not grow quite as quickly as the typical Leghorn.  Unlike the more noisy and flighty Leghorn, this breed is known as a quieter breed, easy to handle, hardy and a good winter egg layer, even in cold climates. They do well in small and medium flocks, in free-range or confinement.  


The standard weights for California White Leghorns is around 4.5+ pounds.


California White Leghorns are good layers of white eggs, laying an average of 280+ per year and sometimes reaching 300–320.  They have a good feed-to-egg conversion ratio. Leghorns rarely exhibit broodiness and are thus well suited for uninterrupted egg laying and have a longer lay life cycle.
