Greenfire Farms Jill Rees Cream Legbar Hatching eggs
Will Ship To: Anywhere
I have Cream Legbar hatching eggs and chicks available. They are from pure Greenfire Farms Jill Rees Cream Legbar lines. The Cream Legbar chicken lays blue eggs, has a crest on their head, and is autosexing (you can tell males and females apart at hatch). I was able to obtain some of the first ones available as chicks. The parents were hatched in August 2014 and have been laying for a couple months. I already have chicks from them. I am NPIP certified through Michigan. Adults have been selected and culled to ensure the best quality and more consistent egg color.
I cannot guarantee the best price. I can guarantee they come from great quality. These come from the Rees Lines and I've culled out the ones that do not meet the standards I'm looking for. They're not perfect, but after making many culls, they're better than any other Legbars I've raised (I've raised Lines A, B, and C from Greenfire and have decided to only keep the Rees lines after much culling). I started with 28 last August straight from Greenfire. They sent a mix of some that were way too light, some with poor body type, some that laid olive eggs, several issues. So, I have culled all but less than 1/3 of them. Now, I have two small pens of 4 birds each (I have 8 breeding Legbars left). My goal is to improve the breed each generation--working for better and better birds.
Eggs will not be over 5 days old when sent. I have:
PEN 1: A male with better coloration over 3 females with better body type.**
PEN 2: A male with better body type over 3 females with better color.**
Eggs will come from both pens, but can be marked separately if you would like.
$50 a dozen
Shipping and handling costs $15 for one dozen. $20 for two dozen.
