That has ended but I would say they would be a good foundation stock. Don't touch the one's at £20 buy now! The gold in the neck is exactly what you need to avoid. :) :grin:

Don't take too much notice of me as I only know what I've picked up on here in regard to Cream Legbars but they look a very even bunch, true to type and if you go to collect and don't like, you can always walk away.

Hey we all have an opinion, why not use it!!! :lol: :lol: This is the sort to avoid. The type is good the gold in the neck hackles means it is not cream. Crested yes legbar type yes. Breeding stock for creams deffo not. Pretty blue egg layers yes indeedy!

I appear to have one of my CLbs going broody . Are they any good at hatching ? I had eleven eggs from eleven birds last Wednesday so unless someone laid two she must be pretty freshly broody . Is it worth a shot ?
thanks

I've had a lot go broody, but never had one sit for a full term. Check when locking them up at night. If she is not sitting transfer to a bator. To avoid night freeze/chill. :grin:

seven (hopefully ) pullets. Someone who viewed the vid said they thought the smaller chick with a greyer tinge to the wing feathers might be a male .This person, an American breeder said that he had hatched chicks this colour and they were male. The chick in questions starts second from the left at the back and ends up on the far right to the end of the sequence. Going by the eye stripe and the chipmunk stripe and the fact it had no headspot I was convinced it was a pullet but what do I know ....

Been a bit quiet in here lately.Have you all been on holiday catching some sun ??

There is one that comes to the front with white/silver that probably is a male, but this is possibly what comes of using cockerels that are too dark, the light down of the cockerel's and the dark down of the females end up blending into the same.

Hi Wilt, I did wonder about that chick myself .It was a strong chick too. However the cock is very pale ,he has very little colour.
I suppose it will all be revealed soon.So, you think the questionable chick ,the one with a grey tone is a pullet ?pic of cock attached.

I think the cock is a good coloured cock, perhaps more chestnut on the wing coverts. The closest chick looks every part a pullet except for the light colour in the wing ends, very strange. Dark brown chipmunk eye liner, I'm right flumuxed. :thumbright:

Hi Wilt, when you say 'perhaps more chestnut on the wing coverts' do you mean there is too much or not enough ?

I think not quite enough, I have gone down the road of have less and less chestnut in the cockerel's, but I think this causes the lightening of the salmon chest on the hens. I believe it is autosomal red (Ar), which has to be in both for breeding otherwise it will cause a general reduction in the Ar if it is only or mainly put in from the female side. :thumbright:
