The Cream Legbar was amongst several breeds researched  in the 1920's at Cambridge University by Professor Punnett and Mr M.S. Pease. They were, through careful breeding, trying to develope breeds that could be sexed as chicks.The Cream Legbar was the culmination of crossing the Brown Leghorn with the barred Plymouth Rock, and then adding the Araucana into the mix. The result produced an extremely attractive medium-sized bird that lays in excess of 220 bluey/green eggs per year. The female has a more pronounced head crest than the male. Its body and tail are silver grey with faint barring; the breast feathers are an attractive salmon colour. The neck hackles should be cream, softly barred with grey and the wing primaries show grey peppering. It is a very active bird that will make the most of running free range, benefitting from grass and other vegetation and as a result is very economical to feed. I was lucky to find some very good foundation stock including an exceptionally smart stock cockerel ; (see pictures) that between them produced some top quality pullets last year so I am hoping for another high quality crop in 2014.

Point of Lay pullets have been sent all over the UK in 2013; including Northern Ireland, and  two couriers have been used that are both reliable and reasonably priced.
