I just googled rocks and leghorns and read the rocks have red ear lobes and leghorns have white. I'm lucky? Guess I need to read up on them. I traded 2 albino rabbits for them. They weren't kept lovingly but I think they have potential.

Yes...you are lucky. ;) One of the best breeds to have...good meatiness, good laying, lay for years, hardy, good feathering, good mothering, good feed conversion, good foraging, good survival instincts, not been overbred by the hatcheries to produce backyard pets.

Thats so good to know. I was offered 30 of them but no way am I prepared for that many birds. Thanks so much for the info. My husband will feel better about them with some good news.
