Cream Legbars are friendly, easily handled, good layers, and one of the
most highly sought after—and rarest—breeds in this country. Cream Legbar eggs are a beautiful
blue, ranging from light blue to light turquoise. And while their eggs aren't jumbo, they lay prolifically.
Legbars are wonderful
foragers and love to be outside. If you like to go a-hunting for your eggs, this is the breed for you, because for some odd reason, laying outdoors is their favorite. Legbars do well avoiding predators in a free range environment,
although they can easily adapt to small yards and runs, too.
Finally, Cream Legbars are fun looking, with unusual little crests tucked behind
floppy combs, looking something like they're wearing berets accented
with flowers--very cool!
Since Cream Legbars are "autosexing," which means the males and females look different at hatch, sexing can be done with virtually 100% certainty.
