Cream Legbar - British Araucana/Americauna

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I got some legbars and isbars from this really sweet Russian lady who loves her chickens. She said they are all from green fire farms. While I was picking them up she offered me a British Araucana. She said it's a different breed that we don't have in the states and lays a blue egg.

To me they look like two different lines of legbars but can someone tell me?

Those look like Legbars to me.

I'd say it's a mix, but with some Aracauna influence. I don't see that Greenfire has British Aracauna. They were one of the parent breeds for the CCL, so maybe the person crossed a CCL with an American Aracauna or Ameraucana and called it a British Aracauna?

Legbars are supposed to have straight combs. Your hen with the redder breast is your Legbar. The other hen has incorrect coloring and to me looks to have a pea comb? I can't tell for sure from the pics.

The one in the top pic and on the left in your bottom pic is a Legbar. I agree with donrae; Greenfire Farms doesn't list British Araucanas in their inventory and the bird in the second pic and on the right in the bottom pic appears to be a mixed breed with some Araucana influence.
