    Thanks! I kind of need the neck feathering.
    My white guy has neck feathers like my wyandotte, but the legs are yellow... He's all white..
    Need to corner him and catch a picture...
    thanx
     
  4. I have two White Plymouth Rock roos that are JUST getting their tail feathers in. They are not matured yet, but if you need a pic of them I will go out and get one for you.

    Yours intrigues me...I bet you there is some Leghorn in that bird. The face being white makes me wonder....LOL

    I wish the white rock in that photo was mine, I just used it from mypetchicken.com. It just had what you were looking for...thank you though! lol!

    Are you feeding them some corn? The corn in the diet can cause the feathers to turn that yellow coloration. Some claim that the sun can do it as well, but I never seem to have that issue with my white birds. My black birds, the poorly bred ones in my flock, will get a burned brownish feather at the end of the summer before they molt. THAT is from the sun as I don't feed corn during the summer months.

    I think they are just dirty. Honestly. He's outside all day. My hens are white as can be and they rarely meander outside.
    He caqme as a Heavy Mixed Breed Cockerel order. I didn't know what breed I wanted when I ordered at first so I wanted some to choose from. I think he would be pure then, as he's hatchery??
    I was thinking leghorn too, but the legs threw me.... and his comb isn't as big as a leghorn I don't think....
