The Legbar is a blue egg laying, auto-sexing breed. They originate in Britain, where they were created (accidentally) when crossing Gold Legbar hens with a White Leghorn. This resulted in the cream colored bird we now know. We breed the crested variety.
The breed was standardized in 1958, but the numbers dwindled along with the popularity of the blue egg. The breed was rescued from obscurity and are now becoming popular for their many fine qualities.
This a slender, elegant breed. They have a small feather crest behind their comb. They are excellent layers, averaging 180-200 eggs per year of medium to large sized, sky blue to blue-green eggs. They are curious and love to investigate everything you are doing in the coop. Their antics are fun to watch, and their quirky personalities stand apart from the rest of the crowd.
