    But I may be wrong.

    Are they from the Batavia auction this past Saturday? Just wondering since there were lots of white mandarins there. Blonde/white can be used interchangeably here in the US. In Europe I think it is different. White hens do have light blonde coloring on their flight feathers. Not sure about the other markings.

    Here in the US its just a white. They have all kinds of different names in Europe the more it might lean toward beige or darker.

    Congrats on the new birds. Just got rid of my last half dozen. I only kept one regular trio now but one of the hens is white.
