Columbine or cream legbar

Postby Wozza1985 » 07 Sep 2016, 16:27

I'm stuck on what to buy either cream legbar POL or the usual breeder who I buy my hybrids from stocks columbines, and he has even said if they do not lay blue/green eggs he will replace them for hens that do!

What is the difference between them both please?
What you you guys go for?


Thank you

Personally I would go for the CLB (we have one) as they are easier to handle and less flighty than the Columbine.
Penny and Freckles - the WArren Girls'
Star and Flopsy (the latter of the floppy comb) both members of the White Star Faction.
Fedora and Florence the Cream Legbars
Emily (see Emily lay) and Erica the Light Sussex babes
1 current husband aka the structural engineer
1 large organic allotment
The Lady Isabella Pickford-Fiennes, a feline of distinction and excellent mouser

I bought 2 crested columbine hens yesterday morning lovely birds, there between 20 & 21 weeks old so a nice size too, they went straight in with my 5 hybrids, much to my surprise there was not much pecking at all just the odd one what was nice to see.
So now I'm just waiting for the what colour eggs they lay, However mark at Harton hens who I normally buy my hens from kindly suggested if any of them lay normal colour eggs he will swop them for another hen if I wanted
