    Hi I was wondering if leg color on an austra white can determine the egg color. For instance some austra whites have white pearl legs and I've seen some have grey. I've heard the breeds eggs range from white to cream. Would a paler leg indicate a paler egg at all? Just curious.

    Never had Austra Whites, but as a genetics buff I can assure you leg color and egg color are completely unrelated.

    I have 4 WLH hens and a BA roo. Which is the recipe for an Austra white. Mine all lay between a rose and a light brown. I will say the AWs with more black spotting lay darker eggs. In my instance at least.
