Cream Legbars (the original color of this breed) were first introduced at the London Dairy Show in 1947 and received a written standard by the Poultry Club of Great Britain in 1958. Legbars grew in popularity to fill a niche market in the British egg industry for pastel eggs produced by free-range birds. 


The Isabel or Opal Legbar is the newest color avaialable in the USA.


Legbars are medium-sized fowl that are known for their active foraging and ability to survive in a free-range environment. The hens are rarely broody and produce a large number of eggs. In 1952, seven Legbar hens in England were monitored for a year. On the average they each laid 260 eggs. 


Legbars are the most popular auto-sexing chicken breed in the world.
