The Gold Legbar was developed in the 1930ís by crossing Brown Leghorns and Barred Plymouth Rocks. It is now very rare and is on the Rare Breeds Survival Trustís watch list of endangered poultry.
The Gold Legbar is an auto-sexing bird, meaning it can be sexed at day old and is very similar in looks to the Cream Legbar, except in lays white eggs because it does not have any blue egg laying Araucana blood.
They are good layers of white eggs as a result of their Leghorn ancestry. They are a placid bird, which rarely go broody.
