The Austra White Chicken is a hybrid breed that is created by crossing a Black Australorp Rooster and a White Leghorn Hen. The resulting offspring is a superb white egg laying chicken breed that is a bit larger than the White Leghorn Hen and has the calm demeanor of the champion brown egg laying Black Australorp.
This breed of chicken really does exhibit the best traits of one the top-heavy breed brown egg layers and the prolific white egg laying chicken. For those that desire a White Egg Layer, but want a larger bird that can be used for meat purposes or a calmer breed that will be good around children, the Austra White is an excellent choice. This hybrid will not disappoint. The appearance of these chicks will be mostly white with black flecks.
