    Unfortunately that is not a female Cream Legbar. What you have there is a young cockerel.

    Noooo! The breeder said female legbars get combs early so I hope not. Already have one roo by accident.

    Cream Legabrs are auto sexing, meaning you can sex them as soon as they hatch. The seller A)either doesn't know anything about the breed they are selling or B)knowingly sold you a cockerel.

    Here is a group pic of Cream Legbar chicks 4 females with chipmunk markings and 1 male with a white head spot

    This is a pic of male and female Cream Legbar chicks female on left male on right

    Here is a picture of a slightly older male and female Cream legbar pair of chicks female on left male on right

    And a Cream Legbar pullet beside 3 Cream Legbar males female on left 3 males in the center

    And this is a roughly 2 month old Cream Legbar pullet

    Don't feel like a dummy. Cream Legbars are a relatively new breed to the U.S. and we are all still learning about them. He will make a handsome rooster and will pass on the blue egg gene to his offspring if you decided to keep him.

    Thank you. Beginner mistake! I'm new to the chicken world but quickly learning. You're probably right that the breeder doesn't know too much about legbars. I am going to try to exchange him for a her. Hate to do it, but he is already clashing with my one other roo and my flock is too small for two!
    :rolleyes:

    My cousin lives in Temeculah!! And I lived in Oceanside and Desert Hot Springs.

    Hope that you get your exchange for a female.... you will like having a CL in your flock -- if you want to learn more about the breed - check out www.CreamLegbarClub.com -
    welcome to BYC and to (hopefully) having Cream Legbrs!
