The Crested Cream Legbar was standardized in 1958. It was created to be a good laying bird that was also auto-sexing.
One of its ancestors is the Araucana, responsible for the green to pale blue egg coloring. It’s crest allows it to be differentiated from its predecessors, the Gold and Silver Legbar.
The female chick has a dark, obvious chipmunk pattern, while the male is a lighter color with less defined markings and often has a yellow spot on the head. These are auto-sexing characteristics and, as such, will continue from generation to generation of pure breeding.
Our Crested Cream Legbar stock includes two imported bloodlines.
