    I have been reading about people crossing Isbars with Cream Legbars to produce "Ice Cream Bars". I just happen to have both blue and splash Isbars and Crested Cream Legbars. Please share your experience with this hybrid and please post pics. Welcome

    Anyone still working with these? Or attempting to make auto sexed Isbars with them?

    I ordered isbar and cream legbars hatching eggs. I dont really have a plan with them yet. My ice cream bars were the result of what I had (male isbars..no females) (cream legbars females...no males).

    Keep us posted. I understand the eggs have a little prettier bluish tint to the egg and lay like crazy. What is you impression about them?

    There are some on eBa;y with pictures. This is where I got my eggs. The lady packs the eggs better than anyone I've ever gotten them from.
