    Is this a Light Brown Leghorn? I have done an amazing amount of research, and I still can't tell for certain what breed she is. She is from mypetchicken, so it must be one of those breeds, and she has a very distinctive cockerel brother who has the speckling and is shown below. Or maybe a Cream Legear, or a Welsummer? Idk

    Both look like Cream Legbars to me. Pretty babies! [​IMG]

    Cream Legbars are actually Crested Cream Legbars. Those birds have crests, so that's what they are. Or supposed to be.....the color doesn't look right to me. they could be mixes--MPC has come out with a crapton of "designer mixes" that could be based of a CCL parent.

    I realize this is from last year but I was curious if you have a current photo of your crested Cream Legbars? We ordered two from my pet chicken and would love to see yours full grown if you still have them :)
