    I hatched 3 Cream Legbar chicks about a week ago. I am certain I have 1 male, 1 female, but I am not sure about 1 chick. It has stripes like a female, but has a small white spot on it's head. What do you all think?

    where did you get your chicks from? some cream legbar breeders are also having the issue of hatching Dark males, that look like females with a headspot, to make things worst they are also getting the females with the headspot making autosexing ver tricky...

    here a Dark male from GFF http://greenfirefarms.com/store/category/chickens/cream-legbar/

    Hi, I have viewed Greenfire Farm's website and pictures, that is why I think it might be a male. The eggs were purchased from an ad/member on here: boykin2010
    Classified: 15+ *RARE* CREAM LEGBAR HATCHING EGGS INCLUDING SHIPPING ( REDUCED PRICE)
    The ad was for his eggs and then the eggs were actually shipped from his friend in Texas??? Their birds are from Greenfire Farm. I emailed him and he thinks it is a female, but I think it will be a dark male. I guess time will tell, I will not be keeping that chick if it is a male.

    I would not breed from that chick if it was a Female either.. autosexing should be easy,
