Pampered Poultry of Georgia (NPIP certified) is proud to offer a pair of Cream Legbar Juvenile pair + 1 rooster. These juveniles are from a un-related rooster and hen and hatched Jan 22nd. The extra rooster in this set is to provide some additional warmth during shipping and/or can be used as a back up rooster. The pictures here are the actual birds. The Cream Legbar is an auto-sexing chick meaning that you can tell the sex of the chick at hatch, The males will have a pale dot on their head and have little or no eye barring. The females will have a dark brown or stripe on their head that continues down the back. You should not confuse auto-sexing with sex-linked. Sex-linked are chicks that are first generation crosses defining the sex and this trait will not continue to their offspring. Auto-sexing are chicks like the Cream Legbar that show defining sex traits that will continue to their offspring. This auto-sexing feature will happen with Cream Legbars for generations no matter if the pair are related or un-related. If you are looking for a way to expand your hens and gather more eggs - what better way to do it then to cull the roosters at hatch? The rising cost of feed makes this very economical to raise only the hens for egg production. The Cream Legbar is a medium sized bird with the roosters weighing approximately 5 lbs and the hens approximately 4 lbs. The beautiful barring coloring on the males are traits that can be traced back to their ancestors, the Plymouth Barred Rock. The breed can be aggressive in protecting their mate and are very alert of their surroundings. Their alertness makes them a great breed for living outdoors on the farm. One other neat feature of the Cream Legbar is the sky blue or green olive tint eggs. The egg color makes them quite distinguishable when gathering. Cream Legbars are medium-sized fowl that are known for their active foraging and ability to survive in a free-range environment. The roosters are vigilant and protective of the hens, and the hens efficiently go about the business of gleaning every seed and insect from the fields and pastures they prefer. They are well-suited for the small homestead and life outdoors. Our flock is strictly feed Purina Feed along with Oyster Grit and other vitamins to insure a healthy flock. Our coup is 100% covered, heated roosts, padded nests, lighted pens, automated 100 Micron filtered waterer and feeder to provide the upmost comfort to our birds. We believe a happy and healthy bird lays the best quality eggs which in turn produce healthy chicks. Unlike the other chicks that you might see listed on various other sites, we can assure you our flock is NPIP, given the best feed/vitamins, received filtered water, and are nurtured in a coop that we proudly say creates the most pampered environment for our birds.
