albino chicken - Page 3

post #21 of 22

Albinos need to be protected from sunlight as the lack of protective pigment makes them prone to cancer. So no free range albino chickens. I read that the yellow on their legs & in the egg yolks is lutien which comes from what they eat, especially corn, so maybe an albino chicken would still be yellow. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I would love to know more about the albino pullet on the last page-health, lifespan, what the eggs & offspring looked like!
