CREAM LEGBAR: A rare, Auto-sexing breed to the U.S. Meaning you can tell the boys from the girls at hatch. Derived partly from the Leghorn and Araucana breeds, the Legbar lays an abundance of large blue eggs. The roosters display barred feathering, while the hens are the cream to beige or brown color. The Cream legbar is one of a dozen auto-sexing breeds available. Through genetic experimentation in the early 1920's a variety of auto-sexing breeds were developed. It was discovered by crossing Leghorn with a barred Plymouth Rock, that it was possible at hatch to see the male with a dot on it's head and the female with chipmunk stripes down her back. This allowed high production breeders to separate the two to serve two different markets early on. In England the blue eggs are considered a delicacy. Some of the auto-sexing breeds have fallen to near extinction. Cream Legbars are a medium-sized fowl that are known for their active foraging and ability to survive in a free-range environment. The roosters are vigilant and protective of the hens, and the hens efficiently go about their business of gleaning seeds and insects from the fields and pastures they prefer. They are well-suited for the small homestead or backyard and their life outdoors.
Our original line of Cream Legbar are offspring from the first line imported into this country, which were not crested, though ours have a small crest, they are not fully crested like the second line that was imported. We have since added other blood lines to our flock, Carol Flaming, Jill Reese and
