Fowl Ever? Leghorns lay a bunch of eggs, are very beautifully shaped, and make great squab/fryers. Eat very little grain compared to a DP breed and come in many different colors. They feather and mature quickly. I've always admired the little birds and admit I have a weak spot for them. I like productive fowl, and Leghorns are very productive. You're not going to get a Roaster out of them, that's where a good DP or Old Meat bird would come in handy. But for someone who loves to grill like I do, the fryer birds are perfect size and tenderness.
