    I have 6 cream legbar chicks and I need verification that I have my gendering correct.[​IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG][/IMG]
    From what I know I think the only males are the pure white/yellow one and the light one next to it. It doesn't have a white spot, but it also doesn't have the three chipmunk lines.
    Any help is greatly appreciated!!

    I knew she was a lady, my others didn't post. She's definitely lighter but clear chipmunk stripes and eyeliner.

    MG] This one is not as clear but still has all three stripes but no eyeliner.

    Firstly, are you sure these are legbars? I raise these birds, and those do not look like my chicks. I realize that some lines vary in how dark or light they are as chicks, but here is a pic of two males and a female.

    I have another that presents as a typical cream legbar female. They were from a guy on Craigslist who did raise other breeds. Maybe there is some hybridization going on?
