    I am hatching cream legbar eggs.

    I have had them in a coop and run by themselves since thanksgiving. Today I hatched a white cream legbar!

    In talking to someone that knows them well, I found out they can carry a white recessive gene. Unfortunately, the little guy does not look like he will live, He seems to be malformed where the yolk sac is.

    I thought some of you might like to see his picture. I never even knew they could occur. I was scratching my head on how he showed up in the hatcher..
