    I love the blue of the cream legbar eggs and was hoping to add a few to the flock this spring, but this winter has been awful Night temps below zero. Daytime temps under 20* and mountains of snow and ice.
    Everything I have now is cold hardy and doing well in these conditions. I'm wondering if I should just stick with the Easter eggers and Americaunas?
    From the looks of them I'm not sure how the cream legbars would fare under these conditions.
    Those of you with cream legbars, what are your winter conditions like and how would you rate their cold hardiness?
