Is this my Cream Legbar?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 


Just got my chicks today and am trying to identify them as best I can. I ordered a wide variety of breeds. I ordered just one Cream Legbar, any chance this is it? She's the most friendly of the bunch so far and even though there are some other chicks that are very similar I am thinking she may be the cream Legbar.
Any thoughts?
Thank you

1 rabbit, two dogs, three cats, 50+ (number goes up & down) free-range 'mutt' hens, roos, chicks, lots of fish (tilapia) and a Jersey cow and heifer calf! Have had quail in the past.

Does it have a single comb? And can you post photos of the other chicks that are similar, and what the breeds you ordered where?

There two are very similar to the first one I posted. They came from Meyers.
I got a number of breeds, I list a couple
Welsummer
Golden/Blue/Silver Laced Wyandotte
Light Brown Leghorn
Cream Legbar
Easter Egger
Silver Gray Dorking
Speckled Sussex
Buckeye
I'm pretty certain they aren't any of the blues, blacks, buffs or Cochins so I didn't list them
Thank you!

You can rule out Buckeye (they look more like Rhode Island Reds as chicks), and Wyandotte. Dorkings have 5 toes, and the Easter Egger should have a pea comb. That just leaves Welsummer, Brown Leghorn, Legbar, and Speckled Sussex. The bad news is that those breeds are all identical to one another as chicks. They even feather in similarly. The Cream Legbar should be crested, but you might be able to really notice that feature until about 6 weeks or so. Speckled Sussex have white skin, but that might not be noticeable for another week or two. Welsummers and Brown Leghorns are impossible to tell apart until after about 10 weeks or so, when the Leghorn's earlobes really begin to turn white.

You are in a wait and see situation...sorry.
