Cream Legbar Sexing Help Needed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have 6 cream legbar chicks and I need verification that I have my gendering correct.[IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]
From what I know I think the only males are the pure white/yellow one and the light one next to it. It doesn't have a white spot, but it also doesn't have the three chipmunk lines.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!

Males tend to have fuzzier markings, and the females have the chipmunk stripes.  That one is clearly marked, and a female.  Here is a thread that may be helpful for you -

Home of the world's cutest dachshund, one crazy blue heeler, two cats,
              one fat pony, and many (but not too many!) chickens

              Can anyone tell me, how many are too many chickens?

I knew she was a lady, my others didn't post. She's definitely lighter but clear chipmunk stripes and eyeliner.

Firstly, are you sure these are legbars? I raise these birds, and those do not look like my chicks. I realize that some lines vary in how dark or light they are as chicks, but here is a pic of two males and a female.

I have another that presents as a typical cream legbar female. They were from a guy on Craigslist who did raise other breeds. Maybe there is some hybridization going on?
