Anyone seen these before??

http://i1185.photobucket.com/albums/z341/Wycrazy/legbar-roo2.jpg

It's a Cream Legbar from Greenfire farm in Florida, they look soo much like an EO rooster.  Wondering if they are related??

Re: Anyone seen these before??

Definitely some similarities in feather and shank color. White earlobes though and of course a leghorn body type. I do love the color. I guess all chickens are related if you go WAY back but not sure how related.

I really wish I knew the right amount of grey for a EO rooster. Some of mine would be as grey as the above leghorn. One 6 week old has NO grey, I thought he was a nice big pullet until the comb came in. Black on the hackles and tail and wings but nice barred brown everywhere else. I'll have to post pictures.

So much to learn!

Re: Anyone seen these before??

I don't think they are related.  These guys are supposed to have a small crest behind the comb and lay blue eggs.  I believe they are an extremly rare auto sexing breed from England,  Maybe Claire has seen them before?

Re: Anyone seen these before??

Poplar, you need quiet friendly cuddly wheaten Ameraucanas for blue eggs!  Though their eggs are pale I think they are the most beautiful chickens I own and sweet like the dorks. The lavenders are closer to batty but have a darker egg. :doI?:

I hadn't seen the legbars when I lived in the UK, but I wasn't as chicken crazy :Crazy: then as I am now!

Re: Anyone seen these before??

I was intersted in them for a little they are a cross between  Brown Leghorns and Barred Rocks with Araucanas. They are auto sexing and breed true I would get some if I could find some but they are very rare and I can't find them.

Re: Anyone seen these before??

It might seem a bit strange if I owned offspring of EVERY breed of chickens you own Claire! Three so far!!

There is no two ways about it, I need a bigger winter coop.

Hello my name is Poplar Girls and I have a chicken addiction?

I want jaerhons from JCE. I want wheaten ameraucaunas from SLF. I want MORE of all breeds I already have!
Oh my :oops:

Re: Anyone seen these before??

I just thought it was interesting as they look so close, the pair I just sold, the rooster was almost identical in markings. They do look smaller, and I thought it was cool that they lay a blue egg.  The hens seem to have a little tuft on the top of their head.

Hi Poplar Girl,
I was reading the research papers online about Vasca and Basque  poultry. From what I read, the EO Marraduna rooster
is supposed to be  gold barred except for black and white barring on the hackle, wings, and tail.
Best,
Karen in western PA

Re: Anyone seen these before??

I already managed to turn down JCE once...he offered to trade me a pair of Jaerhorns for EOs last week. I gotta tell you Susan, it took ALL my willpower. If it was spring instead of almost fall I would have never been able to resist. You are SO an enabler just like SLF. Jaerhorns are so pretty and cute...

3riverchick, thanks, I am really interested to see how my younger Roos feather out. I have chosen about 4 to keep, all different shades that I think might be close to the right one so it will be interesting. I think most marraduna EOs i have seen have too much grey and white, not enough gold. I will post pictures and certainly value others thoughts.

Re: Anyone seen these before??

PG That's why I just sold the pair I had, the rooster and hen were very grey.   They were beautiful but not the "type" I have heard/seen that EO's are supposed to be.  I have kept the two roosters that have the gold and the hens that are the wheaton/brown colour.
It's funny I have two French Wheaton Maran pullets and they almost look like my EO pullets except for the feathered legs, LOL

I think I am getting another camera very soon our older one just went and fell apeart in my hands and the other is in the US getting reapired.
Edit: I do have some pictures that are a month old I can post them I did want to do a comparison with them and the EOs size and other things.

Re: Anyone seen these before??

texastinsel, I got my original birds from some hatchery in Texas and can't remember the name but it would be alot easier to get the day old chicks from there than to ship eggs across the border. But if you do want to ship Susan or I can get you the eggs, if we can get them over the border. :huh:

Y'all are so awesome!!!  Yes, on the waiting list...in regards to the breeder in Texas...I so would love have the contact info!!

I guess I need y'all to educate me on the complexities of getting eggs across the border.  Pretty difficult from Canada to US?

Re: Anyone seen these before??

I believe it was Ideal hatchery sorry I was thinking you were wanting EOs. If its Jaerhorns you want, you would be better off getting them from JCE. He has a flock to choose breeding stock from. I just have 2 pairs here as his back up if he ever lost his. I may breed them next year, but not in huge numbers :) I can show him how to ship eggs.

Yes shipping eggs will be easy but I don't know how to ship eggs across the border I will look for the hatchery in Texas. Yes it was Ideal.
