These are all Marek's vaccinated females.

Austra Whites are not a true breed of chicken. They are a hybrid cross that highlights the best qualities of two breeds and creates a truly beautiful and useful chicken. This cross is created from a Black Australorp rooster mixed with a White Leghorn hen. The very attractive offspring of this cross is mostly white in color with a spattering of small black splashes. Hens lay many large white eggs like their Leghorn mothers. Both roosters and hens are calm and collected in disposition like their Australorp father.

Production: Austra-Whites lay very large white eggs sometimes with a bit of a tint. They are excellent layers - about 250-280 eggs per year. They are also fast growers, mature quickly and the cockerels can be used for meat.

Temperament: More active than the Australorp, the Austra White is energetic and fast. They are lively and alert and will quickly fly up into trees to evade predators. Although a bit more aloof than an Australorp, they are much friendlier and more comfortable with people than Leghorns, which can be flighty. Austra Whites are also not aggressive and make a great addition to your backyard flock. They are great at foraging and are very cold hardy. This is truly a chicken that would do well in all parts of the country.

History: This is a hybrid breed that was discovered in the early 1900's. Because this is a hybrid, you cannot get Austra White chicks from breeding two Austra White adults - they are only produced as the result of a Black Australorp Rooster and a White Leghorn hen.

Colors: Pure white with grayish-green legs and feet. Even the hens will have tall, bright red upright combs, not floppy like the Leghorn combs. They also have full red wattles and red faces. Large dark eyes.

Conservation Status: NA, Hybrid

Body Type: The Austra White is a medium sized, upright cobby bird, with a tall upright-held tail carriage.

Weight: Cockerel 5.5 lbs, Pullet 3.5 lbs

APA Class: Not applicable Hybrid
