Ron Yeo came across a white rooster accompanied by a white hen in October 2010 along Singapore’s Sungei Api Api (left). The pair looked like a male and a female albino Red Junglefowl (Gallus gallus).
The image was sent to R Subaraj who replied: “Very worrying. I don’t know what to think….a white male to add to the white female! Sounds highly suspicious. These may be released genetic hybrids! I cannot be certain!”
Red Junglefowls have been commonly seen around Singapore recently… in rural as well as urban areas. To encounter one albino junglefowl is not an everyday affair. To see a male and a female albino together… well…
