The Cream Legbar is a crested chicken which is a sexable chicken breed. It originated in the 1930s as a cross between Brown Leghorns and Barred Rock with some Araucana blood in them.

The breed is medium-sized and the roosters are known to be protective of the hens. The roosters have cream barred neck hackles and the saddle hackles are cream barred with dark grey and have cream tips. The back and the shoulders are mostly cream barred with dark grey. The wings have dark grey barred primaries and secondaries with cream tips. The breast and tail are barred dark grey and the crest is cream and grey. The female has softly barred cream neck hackles. The breast is almost salmon colored while the body is silver-grey with broad barring. The wings are speckled with grey and the tail is silvery grey with light barring.
