California Whites

Discussion in 'General breed discussions & FAQ' started by Rachel'sFlock, Sep 15, 2012.

  1. Was wondering if there is already a California Whites thread in the breeds section? I looked high and low and can't find one.
    Are many keeping CWs here, on BYC?
    Would love to dish a bit about them with folks who have experience. Mine are my first and they are 2.5 weeks old. They have grown and developed much faster than the same age Black Australorps in my brood.
    They are being broody-raised with my homegrown BA clutch and some hatchery BAs.
    One has a much larger comb than the other, and I am wondering if maybe they slipped me a roo by mistake? (I will be soooo sad!)
    I have also been reading they are a sex-linked breed, so the roos look different at hatching then the pullets?
    Any information about these hilarious little giants would be fantastic!
    Thanks, in advance
