    I have Crested Cream Legbars ....... Um, maybe some Legbars lay blue eggs, but mine don't. I have three two of them lay green eggs, and the other one lays a 'slightly' blue one. Beside a brown or white egg they almost look blue. But when I put them beside a blue egg they are definitely green. I have Easter eggers that lay a truely blue egg and of course my Araucanas lay blue eggs. I had two different Legbar roosters and they were both NASTY mean. I won't be getting any more of them.

    In my opinion, if you want blue eggs, invest in Ameraucanas.....

    I have a pair of wheaten and blue wheaten. I just thought the roos are attractive & I like the rust breast on the hens. I wonder what color eggs I'd get with a CL roo x ameraucana. I wanted isbar for green and I think they are autosexing.

    You're welcome! I know what you mean by "home." After 3 days of driving through scrub, it felt good to be back where trees grow. It was very smokey all around though. So many fires, and I think things are still burning. Huge fire started near us on Saturday. It's burned close to 600 homes and is only 15% contained. We are expecting some rain tomorrow, very rare thing, but not enough to put the fire out. Might slow it down some.

    I don't think Isbars are auto sexing.

    Google Cuckoo Blubars. They are a cross bred chicken that one of the hatcheries are offering. Cross of Cream Legbar rooster and California grey hen, I think.

    Is it because of cholesterol? Grass fed beef is supposed to have better cholesterol (more good, less bad). Has to be 100% grass fed. When they finish them with corn, it changes the chemistry back to bad. Hard to give up things you love. We'll live longer, sure, but will we enjoy it? Don't know how I'd cope if I had to quit eating chocolate. [​IMG]

    that will learn you to "cheat" and skip pages LOL

    I am in the process of purchasing a small hear of yaks. 1 bull and 5 cows.


    Talked to State Vet again and "now" they are fine with "open" cows coming across the state line and only the bull has to be tested for trick-a-something-osous. All paper work and leg work is responsibility of the producer/seller.
