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?

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?

has anyone out there crossed a legbar with an americauna?
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?
