California Gray  information ;

California Gray is an American domestic chicken. It was developed in California in the 1930s by James Dryden, now a professor of poultry science at the Oregon State University. The development process involved crossing a barred Plymouth Rock rooster with a white Leghorn chicken. Its purpose was to produce a dual-purpose chicken that is suitable for both meat production and large white eggs.
