I have had a recent hatch of 4 cream legbars (sold as such, slightly greenery blue eggs).
Three seemed to me to be pullets and the fourth was very very pale, did not look like the pictures I have seen of CL chicks, but did have the correct pattern just very very washed out to yellow. These chicks and particularly the pale chick have feathered out quite a bit now. I would really appreciate some opinions. My instant thought was the pale chick was a male but would be a breeding cull, I have since read though that very pale CL males are ideal breeding stock? I am trying to build a small laying flock, if the cockerels and the neighbours get on, I may do some breeding but otherwise I will be eating/ selling the males. I would only sell a cockerel of there was real merit in allowing them to breed, I have no problem culling. Please let me know what you can about these birds.
