Opal Legbars are beautiful auto-sexing breeds. This breed has everything you love and want all in one package. They are barred lavender birds with cute crests, and blue eggs, and best of all, they are auto-sexing! Know which chicks are males and which are pullets as soon as they hatch!

Opal Legbar hens are pearl gray with either silver barring and light straw yellow accenting around their necks. Their darker color compared to the males’ lighter silvery color perfectly. Some hens also have light peach breasts.

The Cream colored hens are just a gorgeous as the opals, however, they are less rare. They still lay beautiful blue eggs, and will carry the opal gene! 

Opal Legbars lay bountiful quantities of blue eggs. As with all blue egg layers, color perception is dependent on light conditions in which they are viewed, as well as the laying cycle of the hen. We strive to make egg color a primary focus in our breeding program. 

Temperament: Being closely related to the Crested Cream Legbar, these birds are a great choice for small farms, homesteads and backyards. They are easy-going and social. They are also good foragers and are energetic hunters of insects. They may be crested, but this does not impede their eyesight. These birds are alert, smart, agile, and able to avoid predators in most free-range daytime situations. The roosters are very protective of their hens.



By completing your purchase with us, you agree with our policies and terms. It is YOUR responsibility to read our policies in full BEFORE completing your purchase. 

​There are NO cancellations, changes or refunds on hatching eggs. Payment is accepted at the time of the sale. Orders are shipped out as available (or when discussed). Because we are dealing with animals and nature, the orders will be fulfilled in the order they were placed

​We have a flat rate shipping cost of $30 per dozen of hatching eggs. This covers the shipping charge and the packaging material used to safely ship eggs to you.

​One thing to take into consideration is location. We are located in Southern Ohio. We use USPS for our hatching eggs and USPS for our chicks. Most of our hatching egg orders going to the East Coast are delivered in 1-2 days. Any hatching egg orders being shipped to states west of Missouri can take 3-7 days. We make sure to pack the freshest eggs to the states going further west.

​There is NO GUARANTEE ON HATCH RATES. There is a saying to not count your chicks before they hatch. We send the freshest, fertile eggs to you, however, once the eggs leave our farm, we have no control over what happens, other than it arriving to you. Hatch rates depend on your incubation techniques, environment, and housing as well. On the farm, our hatch rate is 94-99% depending on the time of year. We record each hatch percentage weekly and if you have any questions, always contact us.

​We provide our customers with quality hatching egg embryos. We package our hatching eggs in the most secure way possible for their journey to ensure that they make it to you undamaged.

​Please understand that once the package leaves our possession, we have done everything possible to ensure that the hatching eggs reach you safely and that by labeling the box the way we do, we have done everything possible to prevent the transport process from adversely affecting the viability of the hatching eggs being shipped to you.

​Payment for a hatching egg order will be accepted at the time the order is placed. 

Please select the correct shipping option at checkout. If the wrong one is selected, we will send you an invoice for the remaining balance. Shipping must be paid in full to complete your order.

​We ship out hatching egg orders on Mondays and Tuesdays ONLY.

​It is YOUR responsibility to check the condition of the box and to open it and check on the status of the hatching eggs contained inside.

​If any of the eggs contained inside were damaged during transport, whether the box is damaged or not, you should report it to USPS as soon as possible. File a claim for your losses with them at that time. We at Clutch of Color are NOT responsible for broken eggs once they leave our possession. And we cannot submit the claim for you.

​Any claims made through USPS MUST be made within 24 hours of receiving your hatching eggs.
