Hello all. I have been researching crested cream legbars recently. I see that they do have a following but are rare birds. I have read all of the physical details about the breed but I am looking for some other details about the breed. I'll be honest that I originally wanted them for their blue eggs, but find them much more beautiful than the other blue laying breeds. So here are some questions for those with experience with the CCL. 1. Personal experience with them? 2. I have young children. I absolutely will not tolerate a mean bird. I also mostly keep buff orps and I am also worried about them getting bullied. Any experience about their temperament? Are they friendly, cautious, or mean? 3. I have read that they are cold hardy but notice they have large combs. It's cold in Minnesota. Any experience with the breed in cold weather? 4. I have also read that they tend not to go broody often. Has anybody had one go broody? 5. With a leghorn as a one of the original cross birds are they good foragers? I free range my chickens but I do have lots of predators around so a good free range bird would be nice. Any other tips or advice? Thinking about buying hatching eggs this spring. So I have lots of time to research.
