The Cream Legbar was originally bred to enable sexing of chicks at hatching.

Cream Legbar

Origin: Britain

Classification: Light, rare

Size: Large fowl and bantam

Function: Layer

Egg colour: Blue, green, olive

Temperament: Active, reasonably easily tamed

The females possess a well-defined pale head spot and are instantly recognisable. In males, the head spot is rougher and spreads all over the body, giving them a lighter appearance. The cream legbar is a crested breed that has Araucana in its ancestry and lays beautiful coloured eggs in hues of blue through green. A sprightly bird, the males will show sparse dark grey barring in the hackles with dark barring on the body, while the females have a delicate salmon breast and softer barring on the body.
