California White Leghorns may be one of the most successful and productive hybrid egg laying strains of chickens in history. They are the result of crossing a White Leghorn hen with a California Grey rooster. California Whites are attractive chickens with the light weight and upright style typical of the Mediterranean breeds. They are mostly white with a single comb.
Very adaptable, California White chickens do well free ranging and also do fine in confined conditions.
California Whites lay a prolific number of large white eggs. 300 or more eggs per year can be expected. These are also remarkably hardy chickens, with a long lifespan, and they lay for a longer period of time than White Leghorns. They are fast growers as well and start laying at early age. California Whites do well in cold climates and continue to lay well even in autumn when other breeds slow down.
