Just got our 1st chicks (ever-Yay!). We got 2 cream legbars and 1 salmon faverolle. We will probably be going back tomorrow for 3 more. Wondering if I should get more of either of those breeds or they also have bantam orpingtons. I've heard a lot of great things about all of the breeds and am wondering what everyone suggests. I like that we know that we for sure have female legbars (what a plus!). We live in the cold and snowy Minnesota on an acreage. We're just looking for friendly, hardy and good egg layers.
Also, it seems as if cream legbars are pretty rare. Is this correct? If so, why are they so rare?
