Oh my word he is gorgeous!!!! wow!!! beautiful rooster! I also read above about the blue eggs the hatchery suggested the cream legbar breed. Your suggestion sounds interesting! I really want them for ourselves and we love the different egg colors but some of the chickens are pricey so I have really been thinking about breeding a few to balance out some cost. Noone around me has any of these birds. What are your thoughts?
If you can find a breeder that will ship eggs, the Ameraucana will lay eggs just as blue as the cream legbar, and they are far cheaper. Just about all Ameraucanas sold by hatcheries are actually easter eggers, Easter eggers can lay blue eggs too, but most are greenish. A pure Ameraucana will lay blue, without the greenish tinge.
