Opal legbars were created by Candace Waldon. The idea came by using an Isabel leghorn and crossing them with Cream Crested Legbars. Through selective breeding, creative thought process, and creating the perfect bird, Opal Legbars became more of a reality than a dream. Candace has spent years developing this beautiful bird through multiple generations.
The Opal Legbars are by far more than just a beautiful bird; they are auto-sexing at birth, and lay wonderful blue eggs. The birds are lavender barred and have adorable crests. Males have the barring pattern along with gold highlights. Females are either pearl grey with silver barring or light yellow coloring around their necks. The birds will have a silver or peach breast color. From a distance and in the sun, these birds are just beautiful. They glimmer multiple colors of lavender, silver, and peach. These birds are very striking and envious to any chicken fancier. These birds are great in confinement and free range.
Our birds were purchased directly from Candace’s Opal Legbar program and are the product of her seventh generation (F7) of breeding. Our breeding program has just started. We are very excited to offer Opal Legbars here soon. Please visit www.opallegbar.com for more information about this amazing bird. If you are interested in this bird, please feel free to contact us.
