History

The Gold Legbar is very similar to the Cream Legbar and is a true autosexing breed which means that you can tell the sex of the chicks by the colour of the feathers. It is an old pure breed which originated in the 1930s as a cross between Brown Leghorns and Barred Rock. They are very firm, muscular birds with a wedge shaped body which is broad at the shoulders and tapers towards the rear. The wings are large carried close to the body and the back is long and flat while the tail is held at 45° to the back. The head has a strong beak and large single erect comb with five to seven even spikes. The comb is small in the male and larger in the female. The face is smooth with pendant cream or white ear-lobes, long thin wattles and the neck is long and well feathered. They have a yellow beak, red face, comb and wattles. The yellow legs and feet are strong and unfeathered with four evenly spaced toes

Varieties

The male has a grey breast and belly which is barred. The tail is also barred with grey and the wings are dark grey with white and chestnut barring. They neck and saddle hackles are pale gold with black barring on the neck and brown on the saddle. The female has a salmon breast, grey body with light barring, dark grey wings and tail with light barring and the neck hackle is gold with black barring.

hardy birds, a bit slow to start laying but once start lay well and have medium to large eggs of cream to pale brown


kind, attractive, good layers - Sue, 3 December 2012

I was attracted to this breed by their lovely blue eggs, however the plumage is lovely with long extra feathers that float in the wind with many colours, also inclined to be a bit shy, when caught they love a cuddle. They do not argue much at all nor crow excessively or loudly...in all...what more could you want!
