Just wondering if my friends rooster is a true albino? He has yellow feet.

No, not an albino --- he has red and yellow feathers for a start, automatic disqualification, and the yellow legs/beak are also a disqualification from albino status. A true albino should have pink eyes, white skin and white feathers or fur or hair or scales; blue eyes are also allowed in most cases.

Best wishes.

X2 on Chooks4Life's advice. Your bird looks more like a Red Pyle, or a white with some red leakage.

Lots of breeds have yellow feet. Pink eyes are a sure clue to an albino. Good luck with your rooster and welcome to our flock!

Agreed - he's a handsome boy - but not albino - his coloration is pretty standard.

Nope, your rooster isn't an albino. Looks more like a Red Pyle.
