The Novogen White Leghorn is a commercial production stock Leghorn. This particular breed has been developed in France and is derived from a cross between two Leghorn lines. The Novogen White is an exceptional white egg layer that produces large to extra-large white eggs. This is our absolute highest white egg producer!
The Novogen White Leghorn was developed from the start as a free-foraging bird with nest-laying instincts. This means you’ll be collecting clean eggs from the nesting boxes – not the floor! Plus, these white eggs have consistently stronger shells (provided they are fed with a quality layer ration) so they don’t break quite as easily in your egg basket. Your eggs will also be cheaper than many heritage breeds since Novogens have an excellent feed conversion. This means that they are small birds that don’t eat much feed but still produce many, large eggs, which makes each egg cheaper to produce. This exceptional commercial leghorn also has one of the most docile personalities making it a backyard egg-laying champion!
