    I'm seeking a little opinion from the members. Today, I received 4 day-old Crested Cream Legbar chicks from a breeder I have had past satisfactory transactions with. I have a couple of doubts about the represented sex of the chicks, and would like opinions on gender before I address it with the breeder.

    I would say A and C are female. B is male. D looks to have a white head spot but when you look closely at the photos, it appears to possibly be a semi bald spot where fluff has perhaps been pecked off rather than a definite white spot indicating a male. I would image that it is easier to assess this potential semi bald spot in person than via a photo. What does it look like to you?

    I should say that it's a while since I had any Cream Legbar chicks, so I'm no expert.

    You could post them on the Cream Legbar thread, in the breed section of the forum, where you will probably get more knowledgeable replies than mine. (oops I see you already did!)

    Regards
