Austra Whites are a cross between a Black Australorp rooster and a White Leghorn hen. This cross produces a white bird with black flecks. Being a first generation cross, legs can be either yellow or gray. Austra Whites retain the foraging and excellent laying capabilities of the Leghorns while being a little heavier and friendly like the Australorp.
These fast maturing birds are prolific layers of white or cream colored eggs. Hens have been known to lay as early as 12 weeks and you can expect 4 to 5 eggs per week. They are an excellent hybrid breed for those that want lots of eggs from calm and nice hens.
Average Mature weights: Rooster: 6.5 lbs., Females: 5 lbs.
