Austra White Chicken - Cackle Hatchery

Our Austra Whites are a cross between Cackle Hatchery® ’s pedigree Black Australorprooster and Cackle Hatchery® ’s White Leghorn hens (parent stock shown). ... This cross produces offspring that are very good layers throughout the year and lay a large offwhite/cream color egg.

This crossed back to the Black Australorp should start giving you some white chicks. They may at first have a few black spots but select for as close to white as possible then keep crossing the offspring together and back crossing to Black Australorp.

After posting this yesterday , it got me to thinking ( ut oh ). I need more runs/coops.

I would like to give this a try. I just don't have room for another project. Somebody give me some money so I can work on them.

Well anyway it's a good ideal. I guess if I ever get tired of my Naked Necks ( not likely ) I could work on them.
