Other common names: California White Sex Link Chicken

The California White Chicken is a sex-linked cross breed white egg laying chicken. It is a cross breed created from a White Leghorn Hen and a Gray California rooster. This breed has not been given recognition by the American Poultry Association.

Types: Largefowl
Varieties (Single Comb:) White with black flecking
Uses: Eggs
Weight: 5.5 - 7 lbs
Personality: California Whites can be nice pets if given the attention, but they tend to be active and noisy.

What else you should know:
The California white like many production fowl, is more prone to suffer from egg binding.  To prevent egg binding, make sure your hen is getting enough calcium and exercise.  Many hybrid fowl have weaker immune systems, so you may want to consider vaccinations and keeping your chicks on medicated feed.

(Breeders and sellers have to jump through hoops to get RightPet listings, literally, we make them do circus tricks. Unfortunately no one has met our high acrobatic standards for this animal yet, but hopefully they will soon!)

(We've had no luck finding any of these frisky fellas so far, even though we've put up wanted posters and everything! But don't worry, we're working on it!)
