Let’s take a closer look…
No matter what kind of all white chicken you have, make sure to bring it to the vet so they can check for any health problems that may be causing the lack of color in your bird’s feathers!
If you are seeking a brightly colored bird, then the Malayan Rock hen is probably what you are after. These hens are known for their striking combination of purple and yellow feathers. Other bold colors that often appear on roosters include blue, green, and red. Whether these colors are incidental or deliberate is hard to say – but they sure do make for an eye-catching pet!
Aside from coloration, there is also a great deal of variation in how roosters look (and acting) around people and animals. Some birds are quite docile while others can be quite spirited – it all depends on the particular bird’s personality! And finally yes, some roosters ARE definitely noisy!! But if that sounds like your cup of tea then by all means go ahead and get yourself one of these funny little birds!
To tell the sexes apart, you need to look at the male’s bill and the female’s throat area. The male has a larger bill (usually about one and a half times as long as the Female’s throat) with straight edges and a sharp point at the end; this is what he uses to peck flowers for food. The female’s bill is smaller, has more curved edges and doesn’t have a point – she mostly eats insects or other small animals. Her throat area also has some subtle differences: in males, there are three light brown spots near each corner of the mouth; these get progressively darker towards the centre of her throat, while in females they’re absent or much smaller.
