    I suspect that they are hybrids of some sort but they were sold to me as Legbars........ I suspect not. Neither of them have started laying yet. I bought them in September this year as POL chickens

    I suspect that this one is an Adalusian or and EE (which I have just learnt about from the forum). Sorry but as a new member I am not allowed to actually post photos on here

    Here is the other one. This one does have a salmon colour developing on her breast and is much lighter than the other

    Not all mutts are EE's. These two do not have the traits common to most EE's. Where did you get them?

    Where are you located (country) and where did you get the birds from? I don't think they look like legbars, not sure what they are.

    Thanks, yes they were both sold as cream legbars. The second one looks more like a legbar. I had the owner of a place called Perfect Poultry come in to garden recently and he thought the first one could have been a maran. I think it will help when they start laying eggs to see if they are blue, white or brown.​
