Officially Representing
Since 1901

The American Brown Leghorn Club was formed in 1901 declaring as its three objectives "to increase interest and demand for high quality Brown Leghorns; to disseminate information on reliable and successful methods of breeding, raising and management; to bring about united efforts, harmony, integrity and good fellowship in promoting the interests of Brown Leghorns."


The club entertains special meets at poultry shows around the country and hosts an annual national meet which travels to a different region of the U.S. each year. In addition, the ABLC sponsors programs to interest people in Brown Leghorns and help them get started. Such programs include sources of stock and hatching eggs, newsletters, yearbooks, advertisements in various publications, and the distribution of fact filled brochures.
