    This is Lola, a little hen that I picked out of the Ancona bin at our Big R store last May. She is almost the exact opposite of our two Ancona hens. She is one of the friendliest while her sisters are the most standoffish. They are black and she is white. I looked at all of the breeds listed on this website, and didn't see anything that looks like her.

    She is an Austra White. They are a cross between a Black Australorp and a White Leghorn.

    That makes sense. This is Jake, our Austrolorp rooster, and he's a sweetie; eats out of our hands.

    Probably an Austrawhite. Handsome rooster!

    She looks like an Austrawhite to me, too.
