    I had 9 birds brought to me in a rescue type situation and I was wondering if this fellow is a certain breed or a barnyard mix. He’s got white earlobes, he’s really a super nice roo. His legs are gray. His neck feathers are a tan color, but the rest of him should be white, I think. He was so dirty when he came to me.

    He may be an Austra white, a newer mixed breed.

    Austra White seems to be it. I have a hen of the same coloring. I’ve never had this type before.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Austria Whites are a cross of a Black Australorp male over White Leghorn females. Known to be excellent layers of cream/tan eggs.
