    Quote:second isn't cream legbar, it's totally the wrong colour, i've used google translate and this is the information about them


    From our local races Brabants is the only member of the grouse family crest of the fowl. This breed is also known as the national anthem, or Houpette CEO. As with many of our local breeds is the selection of this grouse only started at the end of the nineteenth century.

    In 1903 a special club was founded. This marked a flowering of the Brabant fowl. Always new varieties saw the light, including colored quail who became the most typical battle would be. With the outbreak of WWI, the rise of the Brabant chicken abruptly stopped.

    After the war, the Leghorn and more popular with the advent of industrial hybrids meant the death of the Brabant as a producer of chicken eggs in agriculture. For several decades the Brabançonne suffered a marginal existence. The breed has survived the ravages of time only because a handful of tenacious fans.

    Fortunately, it already some time better with the Brabant fowl and demand is still rising. It is a country chicken with its own form: the so-called cone type. In hens, the abdomen is very pronounced.

    Besides, the special type of fowl Brabant special comb. First is the ridge that is clearly different in both sexes. The rooster has a large upright comb, the comb them toppling leans against a nice round crest. The cock is hardly the crest and consists of only some fine springs follow the line of mind.

    The hens are excellent legs ters. The above is an active breed that wanders all day. A good fence is required for this behavior is literally within the limits.

    This breed is recognized in the following colors: quail, silver quail, blue quail, blue quail silver, black, blue, white, buff and buff columbian.​
