What breed are these white roosters?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

And they could be mix...have no idea if they are purebred anything. They've been visiting my farm daily since they discovered my hens. They come from a neighbor's house a good distance away, stay all day, then go home at dusk. I asked my neighbor, she has no idea what they are, she just got them -- unfortunately -- to keep the ticks and fleas out of HER yard. I'm curious because my hens free-range during the day and obviously, fertilized eggs will be either theirs or my own roo's. I would like them gone so I would know what possible chicks would be, but the neighbor does like I do, turns them out daily, and she doesn't want to keep them up. If I ever do have opportunity to incubate, I'll just have to keep my hens and roo up for a while.

Thanks!

i would say that this chicken is probably a phoenix mixed with a leghorn or cornish. there might be some andalusian blood in there too.

I named my buff orpington oreo. go figure.

They look like young cockerels.  My guess from those photos are white leghorns.

I would never eat a cow's tongue.  Gross!  Give me an egg.

I dont think their leghorns, I dont see white earlobes

silkies and (projects), sumatras, lakenvelders and (projects), frizzles, polish and (2 projects), black sexlinks, turkeys, red golden pheasants, Peepers, dogs, cats, fish, horses, wild kids, and one very understanding DH, come on over for a visit to the crazy farm

I checked, they do have white earlobes. They are considerably smaller than my hens, but they are older, because my neighbor had them, and they were grown, before I got my chicks in April. Skin on their legs is pale-pinkish.

I can't get close enough to get a good pic sad

They aren't the right shape for leghorns, either. I'd say a cross.

Hello All,

Do any of you know where I can get white rooster feathers? 

I need these in particular, ideally tail feathers. I am in the Los Angeles area, and need these for creative/ceremonial purposes.

Would so appreciate any leads.

My thanks!

These look like the one I got recently.
He was a rescue, found half dead with a hen on Halloween night.
