Description

The Cream Legbar chicken is a rare British autosexing breed. It was created by Reginald Crundall Punnett and Michael Pease in the early Twentieth century at the Genetical Institue of Cambridge University. It was developed by cross-breeding the Gold Legbar with White Leghorn and creme-colored Araucanas chicken. The Araucanas introduced the dilute creme gene as well as the crest and the blue eggs into the varierty. Chicks can be sexed upon hatching by the down colour and the pattern they form. They are both a cold and heart hardy bird with a active, very curious and charming personality.
