Don't know a darned thing about chickens but I believe Longhorns are steers!

Honestly laughing out loud. I have never heard of a Longhorn chicken, but as Seedfork stated I do know there are longhorn cattle. Sorry, but, still laughing...have a wonderful day...Haystack

Sorry, I knew you meant to say White Leghorn! Yes, I think I do have a little cabin fever. My neighbor just started raising chickens, and I know she has some White Leghorns and some Rhode Island Reds, but she has not had them long enough to have any breed. She till might know the answer to your question, if you don't get a good answer I will ask her over the next couple of days.

I did find this on the internet:
If the RIR is male and WL is female you will get a Amber Star Hybrid
