Golden Sebright or old English Mille Fleur chick??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I've googled both breeds and I have 4 chicks I received in my Ideal Poultry bantam special order. I initially thought it was a golden Sebright but now I have my doubts . Any input would be of great help to me.

Looks like Golden Sebright chicks to me.

17+ pigeons, about 20 coturnix quail, 10 chickens and 2 angora rabbits

Golden Sebright.  They are more contrasting in their black / white.  The Mille Fleur blends more and has a more smoky / "cinnamony" look to them.  Cuteys!

The bird in back is a Golden Sebright. However, the chick in front has a single comb, which makes it either a hatchery quality Sebright or a Mille Fleur Old English Game bantam.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

The chipmunk colored ones are Old English Game Bantams of some color.
I have 2 Crele Old English Game Bantams, 1 Bantam Golden Laced Cochin, 3 Bantam Barred Cochins, a special needs Holland Lop rabbit, a Tan rabbit, three Polish rabbits, and a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
