Opal legbars are a fairly new color variety of the legbar breed.  These birds are absolutely beautiful, with light salmon shading on their chests, silvery blue on the rest of their bodies, and subtle barring.  The opals have maintained that awesome legbar trait of being sexable at hatch, so we can get you tiny baby girls or boys for this breed!  The lavender plumage gene that causes the lighter color is recessive, and it requires extra care in order to keep the feathers of the birds healthy.  For this reason, opal legbars cost a little bit more than our other sky eggers.  These girls will grow up to lay beautiful turquoise eggs.  Our opal legbar roosters have been genetically tested, so we can verify that all of their babies will receive a copy of the blue egg gene!  Since this shade of legbar is new to the chicken world I’ve found that their eggs aren’t as vibrant as some other blue layers, but we are working on that!

All of our chicks are vaccinated for Mareks soon after they hatch!  If you do not know how to care for baby chicks please do your research before ordering!  We have lots of information on our Chicken Keepers Guide page.  If you order a cockerel please let us know what age you’re hoping for.  We will do our best to accommodate!  If you are already ordering females in the 0-3 weeks age bracket we will include a cockerel for free if you’d like!

Please note that this product will be marked as in stock when we believe we will have some available within the next couple of months.  We do not have a waitlist for these birds, but feel free to reach out if you have questions.
