    Just recently acquired a white hen of unknown origin. She's in quarantine now but I'm wondering if I can breed her with my Mottled Black Tom? She doesn't seem to have the BBW figure so I'm thinking she's just a white.

    Can anyone identify if this is a BBW or a White?

    I think the heritage mottled black can breed a BBW

    That's an Oregon gray tom, not a mottled black.
