History: Legbars are very new chickens and are an example of how worthy chicken breeds can still be developed today. Frost White Legbars are a sport variety of the Cream Legbar. Legbar Chickens originated in Great Britain in the 1930s as a part of a genetics breeding program done by Reginald Crundall Punnett & Michael Pease of Cambridge. As a result of this program, two auto-sexing breeds were created, and the Cream Legbar was one of them. Legbars were created from crossing Araucana lines with Barred Rocks and Brown Leghorns. Legbars first appeared at the 1947 London Dairy Show. Cream Legbars were admitted into the British Poultry Club in 1958. Cream Legbars were just recently imported into the U.S. in 2010, and have yet to be admitted into the APA Standard of Perfection.
