They are a cross of a Cream Legbar. So if they have the same characteristics they are a bit flighty at first but soon will be eating out of your hand. but they might lay blue or green eggs that part is just pot luck.

If you want a pure blue egg layer then you will want to go with a Araucana The blue egg colour of the Araucana is a dominant gene - so when the Araucana is crossed with another breed - the female offspring will always lay blue or tinted eggs
