We are just getting started out but are really excited about this breed. We got week old chicks from all three of the Greenfire Farms bloods that were imported from the UK. We look forward to network with other breeders and are happy to answer anyone's questions about the breed. We are currently preparing a display for the Fancy Feathers Poultry Show in New Braunfels, TX on March 10 to introduce and educate the public to the Cream Legbar.
This breed was developed by Prof. Punnett (who developed Punnett squares) in the 1920's & 1930's as part of the Cambridge University breeding program. It is an autosexing breed which means the male and female can easily be distinguished at birth by color and they breed true generation after generation. This breed also is know to be a good layer of sky blue eggs. They are good foragers, medium sized, and a really pretty bird making them one of the all-around best backyard chicken breeds to keep.
