The Leghorn chicken is a breed that originated in Italy, they were first imported to the US in around 1828 and are commonly used as egg laying chickens. The leghorns’ eyes are red, the beak is yellow, they have long yellow legs, and their feet have four toes. They possess ten primary feathers which are present on the wings of the white leghorn hen.

The hen has a slim build, and they are often portrayed in cartoons and children’s books as being comical and highly unusual. Their legs and feathers and slim build allow them to be excellent flyers, and they love to perch up in the trees when they are feeling active enough. These birds tend to avoid human contact in general and in no way are they a “lap chicken.”
