Cream Legbar

$8.00$14.00

Cream Legbar chicken are a rare British auto-sexing breed that lays colored eggs.  They were created by Reginald Crundall Punnett and Michael Pease in the early twentieth century at the Genetical  Institue of Cambridge University.  It was developed by cross-breeding the Gold Legbar with White Leghorn and creme-colored Araucanas chicken.  The Araucanas introduced the dilute creme gene (‘inhibitor of gold’) as well as the crest and the blue eggs into the varierty.  It was standardized in 1958 but nearly died out in the 1970’s as blue eggs were not in demand.  Chicks can be sexed upon hatching by the down colour and the pattern they form.  They are both a cold and heart hardy bird with a active, very curious and charming personality.

The male has cream barred neck hackles and the saddle hackles are cream barred with dark grey and have cream tips.  The back and the shoulders are mostly cream barred with dark grey.  The wings have dark grey barred primaries and secondaries with cream tips.  The breast and tail are barred dark grey and the crest is cream and grey.  The female has softly barred cream neck hackles.  The breast is almost salmon colored while the body is silver-grey with broad barring.  The wings are speckled with grey and the tail is silvery grey with light barring.
