I am looking to purchase an outside Legbar rooster.  I stumbled across this ad on Craigslist.  Here are the pictures of the Cream Legbar roosters they have for sale.  I am pretty certain they are not Legbars.  What do you think????

Good lordy, not even close!  Run as far as you can from that ad.

Just saw this thread -- and I realize that it is old.  for the record - I need to say that Cream Legbar #2 above is a nice example of a Cream Legbar.  The males go through a lot of color/plumage changes as they mature -- and the #2 above would have probably grown into a very nice CL cockerel.  

 

You can see both have crests and upright combs, yellow legs and beaks.  The number 1 looks more like it is missing one of the required 'barring' genes that Cream Legbar males have -- or else the expression of the second barring gene is very weak.  #1 looks more like a silver-duck-wing with very slight barring.  

 

ETA - the feathersite photo above is a nice example of a mature CL -- and little #2 above could have grown up to look very similar. If you go to the Cream Legbar Website - you can see some photo essays of people who took monthly pictures of their chicks as they grew.  On the left navigation bar it is #12. HTH
