Cream Legbars

Cream Legbars: 

A Cream Legbar pullet at 18 weeks of age

The Cream Legbar chicken is an amazing breed that was only imported from the UK in 2011. They are becoming popular for very good reasons.

First, they are an auto-sexing breed. You can tell which chicks are male and female at hatch. Unlike sex-linked hybrid chickens (such as Black Sex-Linked and Red Star), the auto-sexing trait is preserved in future generations.

Second, Cream Legbars lay eggs with blue eggshells.

Third, Cream Legbars are crested. This is a fun physical trait that makes the Cream Legbar a standout.


I am a charter member of the Cream Legbar Club and am currently serving as the Central Regional director for the club.  I obtained my initial stock directly from Greenfire Farms, the original importer of the Cream Legbar. I have two lines of birds I am working with. One breeding line consists solely of Jill Rees line birds. The second line is a Jill Rees cockerel over 3rd Generation Greenfire Farms imports. This second "Gust Front Farm" line is still in the project phase, but I hope to combine the best traits of the earlier imports (large, numerous eggs) with the Jill Rees line (true cream color, etc.)
