This was sold to me as a female crested cream legbar. Supposed to be 1-2 weeks old. What do you think?

If you were told that is is a female Cream Legbar Chick then I am sure that is what it is. I don't see any thing that would indicate that it is not a cream legbar. It has the start of a crest, it has correct markings for a pullet, it has correct skin color, it has the correct comb type, correct beak color, etc. Below are a pair of Cream Legbars from my flock. With the autosexing breeds the pullets will have the chipmunk patterns stripes. There is typically a very pronounced dark brown V on the top of the pullet's head with the point going towards the beak. The pullet also typically have a strong black stripe from the corner of the eyes. The males may have a stripe but it is very diluted and fade. Their over all body color of the cockerel is much lighter than the pullets. The pullet may have a small white dot on their head (but many don't) but the males will have a much larger and wider white dot on their head. The males will not have a strong V nor dark strip from the corner of the eye. Like the dorsal stripes those will be diluted and faded on the males.
