They can't lay white eggs. Turns out mine wasn't a pure breed either in the end. But I don't have her anymore because she was killed last year by something, I think rather a stoat, sparrow hawk or a buzzard.

they may be a Legbar and not a cream legbar

 

only cream legbars lay a Green/blue egg

 

the main difference is RC Punnet bred the Legbars to lay a pinkish egg due to the BPR leghorn crossing

 

they where called Legbars of GOLD and SILVER variety

 

then the British Tailed Araucana was added to the mix which gave a CROWN and Green/Blue Eggs

 

does yours have a CROWN

also CREAM Legbars are not entirely GOLD and not entirely SILVER they are in-between which is referred to as CREAM

You have blue x dark brown, so the offspring should be Olive Egger.

I had two blue eggs that did not hatch, but these look like female legbars. From tan eggs??
Are they a mix?


My 3 others are blue and splash orpingtons supposedly.
