The Cream Crested Legbar is a unique and visually striking breed of chicken known for its distinctive appearance and colorful eggs. Originating in Britain, this breed is prized for its beauty, friendly temperament, and excellent egg-laying capabilities.

They have a striking appearance characterized by their crests of feathers on the head, which give them a distinctive and regal look. They also have a slender, athletic build with clean legs and a well-balanced posture. The coloration of their plumage can vary, but they typically have cream-colored feathers with barred markings on the wings and tail.

One of the most remarkable features of Cream Crested Legbars is their egg color. They lay eggs in shades of blue or green, a trait inherited from their Araucana ancestry. This unique egg coloration makes them highly sought after by egg enthusiasts and adds a colorful touch to any egg basket.

Cream Legbars are considered autosexing, meaning you can reliably determine the sex of the chicks at hatch based on their coloration. In this breed, male and female chicks exhibit distinct markings that allow for easy sexing. However the accuracy of auto sexing quality can heavily rely on the quality of the line.

In Cream Legbar chicks, females typically have a chipmunk-like appearance with distinct facial markings, including a dark stripe running down the center of the head and another dark stripe extending from the eye down the side of the head. Additionally, female chicks usually have darker, more defined markings on their backs compared to males. On the other hand, male Cream Legbar chicks typically have lighter, fuzzier, and less defined markings overall. They lack the distinct facial stripes seen in females and often have paler coloration on their backs.

Cream Crested Legbars are known for their friendly and sociable nature. They are active birds that enjoy foraging and exploring their surroundings, making them well-suited for free-range environments. They are also relatively docile and easy to handle, making them a favorite among backyard poultry enthusiasts and small-scale farmers. While they generally tolerate various temperatures, they are less adept at coping with cold compared to heat. Being a lightweight and lean breed, they benefit from coops with sheltered areas during harsh weather conditions. They typically exhibit non-aggressive behavior towards other breeds, making them suitable for mixed breed flocks with similar age, size, and temperaments. However, their tendency to be flighty may necessitate the use of high fences.

Our Cream Legbar breeders are carefully chosen from both UK import and Australian lineages. Rooster from the UK import line boast a true cream color with minimal chestnut/buff leakage and erect combs. Hens exhibit salmon breasts with cream hackles, all adorned with crests. Our chicks, with clear markings, can be easily sexed upon hatching.
