White leghorn info?

Hi I’m getting a couple of white leghorn hens just under 1 year old next weekend. What are these breeds like? How many eggs? Large egg?
Are they flighty (so I know to clip)

They will be going in my back garden 9 metre run with my 3 CLB & my 5 rangers.


Thank you in advance

Columbine or cream legbar

I'm stuck on what to buy either cream legbar POL or the usual breeder who I buy my hybrids from stocks columbines, and he has even said if they do not lay blue/green eggs he will replace them for hens that do!

What is the difference between them both please?
What you you guys go for?


Thank you
