A true albino has pink/red eyes. Most (if any) white chickens don't. I wonder why we don't have many albino chickens...

What an interesting question.  I never thought about an albino chicken before.  Now I want to see a picture of one...if there is such a thing?  smile

Oooh, wouldn't that be amazing to hatch an albino chick? I wonder if an albino chicken would have many problems, as I know albinos of other species can sometimes have...

I once came across an albino fly in my house once! It was pretty amazing, but I lost track of it before I could get pictures.

We have Buff Orphingtons and a few Rhode Island Reds.  We hatch 27 baby chicks from these hen's eggs in our incubator.  We got one WHITE chicken, three reds, and the rest are buffs.  Where did the white one come from?  Albino?

No  white is a recessive gene in those breeds.  Albinos would have no skin or eye pigmentation.
