White Star AKA Commercial White Leghorn
The white star is the smallest of the hybrid layers but in my opinion lays the biggest eggs. We call these girls ‘the egg laying machines’. They are very fast lively birds which are very independent. If they could talk we think they would say ‘leave me alone and I’ll lay you lots of eggs’. They have lovely snowy white feathers, long tail and a large comb which some get confused with being a cockerel.
Temperament – Independent. Inquisitive. Phenominal layer. Hardy. Quick on their feet. Flighty.
Eggs – They are a layer of pure white eggs and can lay up to approximately 320 in their first year of lay.
