    I al trying to find a picture of a california white rooster. I have googled it and all and came up with nothing! What am I doing wrong? I have 3 California Whites "pullets" and I think one might be a rooster. I can find a picture to compare to. Anybody have one they can snap a pic of?

    I will later, but I am really trying to see what the roosters looks like and I can't find one anywhere. I just want to compare, I didn't think that it would be hard to find a picture. I thought it was a common breed when I purchased them. One is just so much bigger then the other two. BTW thanks for your help. [​IMG]

    Maybe it's because it's a sex linked bird that you're having trouble finding pictures? I don't know....

    does that mean there are no roosters?

    It doesn't mean that no roosters hatch, but since it's a mix of two breeds to get a good layer, the roosters all end up in the grocery store. Unless it's a backyard flock the roosters aren't used as breeding stock. It takes a California Grey roo and a white Leghorn hen to make a California White. At hatch the feathering is different so it's pretty easy to tell who's who.

    Should have said down color at hatch since they don't have feathers!! [​IMG]
