    hi,

    I have a cream legbar rooster. I would love to know more about the genitics of this breed. I plan to breed him to other breeds and would love to have some genetic advice.

    if anyone has bred legbars to other breeds I would love to know what your results were.
    posting photos would be fantastic.

    I have a rainbow flock so I have many breeds to choose from. I would like to learn more about the barring gene.
    does anyone know what color I should breed to?
    what do you get if you breed barred to splash or laced?

    is a legbar game chick different from a cream legbar? I am just learning about them.
    why would a production breed be good?
    I have golden comets.

    You should try crossing him with a lightbrown colored hen. If you have any welsummers or light brown leghorns, those would be better than many breeds. I crossed my rooster with some rose combed light brown leghorn hens to work on a rose combed legbar. I will breed these back to legbars and just keep the best and breed from them over time. Here are a couple pics of my 'legbarhorns' (what I am calling these chicks)

    really nice looking birds. thanks for posting the photos. are your girls laying? I was wondering if they lay blue.

    I have a barnvelder pullet. would she work to breed to my legbar?

    any breed cross to Legbars should come out looking Barred(except when crossed to white leghorn)... cross a legbar rooster to black Ameraucana, and you will end up with barred chicks... cross a legbar rooster with a silver/gold duckwing Ameraucana will produce Crele birds...

    what color do you get with a white leghorn? I was thinking of buying one of those. wondering if that would be a boo boo.
    We have silver ameraucana pullets (not duckwing). would they produce crele? Do you know if the chicks would have beard and muffs?

    There is no such thing as a Legbar Game.
