Well, I did it....

We started with 5 BA's about 2 years ago. We lost one while free ranging. Never say a trace of her. Yesterday we just lost another with no trace. It's heartbreaking, but I guess it's the price you pay for free ranging. 😢

I've been wanting to get some cream legbars and I found someone hatching locally so I put in my order. We should have 4 new females and our first male in March. Getting mentally prepared for taking care of the new babies and all of the cleaning.

I've read that cream legbars can be pretty flighty. Anyone have experience?

Sorry about the losses, but congrats on the chick order!

I've never had CLs, but I believe theres a thread in the Breeds, Genetics and Showing section of the forum. That would be an excellent place to do some research and ask about their general personalities.

Good luck with your new babies!

Thank you! We are putting out snares out now to see why we get. We found the feathers in the woods. 😢

I am excited about my new babies though! 😁

My guess would be fox, they're sneaky (and hard to catch)! Good luck!

I recently got two Cream Legbar pullets and a cockerel. While I wouldn't call them flighty, they aren't a particularly affectionate breed. They were very easy to hold a cuddle as chicks, though. Once I trap and grab one, though, they do settle down to being handled with little fuss.

Thanks for the info. Of course, I plan to handle them as much as possible, but
I work full time and live an hour away from town, so that Pretty much eats up my day.

And yes, I'm thinking it's probably
A fox too. 😞
