Breed of the Week: Cream Legbar

Cream Legbars are relatively new to the United States.

​Cream Legbars are a beautiful breed that lay a sky-blue egg.  They are also autosexing- meaning their chicks are sexable at hatch. ​  The down color is markedly different between the male chicks and the female chicks.  They are classed as light fowl, kept more for their egg-laying capacity and egg color than meat production.  Although not as rare as they used to be, high quality Cream Legbars are still hard to find.

​I am working with the Cream Legbar Club to approve a standard for the American Poultry Association.  In the meantime I encourage those wanting to better the breed to read the British standard.   We breed toward this standard- cream and crested.  Some people mistakenly call this breed “Crested Cream Legbar” but as all Cream Legbars SHOULD be crested this additional descriptor in the name is unnecessary and incorrect.

We absolutely love our Cream Legbars.  Our birds originate from Greenfire Farms, the only source of Cream Legbars in the USA so far.  Along with other Cream Legbar enthusiasts we have helped to form the Cream Legbar Club, a new organization geared at promoting and bettering this wonderful breed.  Visit the club website here to learn more!
