Cream Legbars 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.
Cream 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. Cream Legbar eggs are often deceptive in their appearance.
Now to kick it up a notch, we are one of few breeders in the USA working with Opal Legbars. This is the Cream Legbar hen with the addition of the lavender gene to create the visually stunning ISABEL color! If you are interested in being on the Opal waiting list please send us a message. They will be $35 each. For now you can order the regular legbar color!
Legbars are the most popular auto-sexing chicken breed in the world.
We can sex these by color at hatch!
