Potentially a mix with olive eggs in mind. Due to pink legs, probably Marans, maybe cuckoo in color. It also has a beard so EE or Ameraucana. Not confident there is even Cream Legbar in it or that it's a cockerel

Ok thank you, bought these two pullets hatched from the same egg stock. Wonder if they help in the mystery?

First one could have Legbar in it. The feathering and form is similar. Could be someone’s attempt at an olive egger, so possibly a Marans parent. If you’re in UK or Aus, the muffs could be from an Araucana, or they could be from a bearded Polish - which makes sense for the darker buff one. Either way, they’re all pullets and they’re barnyard mixes, it seems possible to me that they could have a mixed parent and a pure parent.

Ok thank you all for your input. I happen to know that the first one is a cockrell and was sexed at birth alongside the two golden ones as pullets. Hence why i believe they have legbar in them. Still love a good mystery though and any other input would be welcomed

I’m in very high doubt it’s a cockerel and the fact it was sold as a Legbar proves the seller is questionable. The only way they could be sexed at hatch is if the mother was a Legbar and the father was solid coloured, or if they were vent sexed.
