    That makes sense. It doesn't seem to me that I've ever seen a pure straight white stripe. I haven't tried to track the depth of stripe color with cream vs gold. But maybe will give it a shot if I get a lot of females from the hatch a few weeks away.

    Steen, even with sun glare in the pictures, he looks very good.

    some of BlackBirds show grey barring on saddle also and maybe one or more that I dont recall now, but your male look very nice indeed

    I think I get your point now. But my gold and cream gray based females all had the same cold gray body down tone.

    One has gold hackle two have cream hackle now. But all had the cold down body color and all have the gray based body now.

    Hey all,

    I'd like to know how your Cream Legbars have fared so far in colder climates. Specifically, if their combs have suffered from frostbite. Thanks!
