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

    Hello and [​IMG]

    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.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

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

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    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. [​IMG]
