Silver Sebright Bantam pullet?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

This pretty little pullet is one of an assorted batch from McMurray Hatchery 16-17 weeks old. She is the only bantam since I lost a little White Polish. Could she be a variation of a Silver Sebright? HOpefully her tail will get a chance to grow now that I have culled roosters.

I will try to get a better photo tomorrow. In the meantime, after looking thru Pinterest til my eyes hurt, I thino she may be a Silver Spangled Hamburg.

Definitely a Silver Spangled Hamburg. Not a bantam though - Hamburgs are just very small standards. They are a lovely breed, congratulations.

Thank you! Yes, the black tear drops on the white feathers are gorgeous. Glad to know it isn't a bantam breed. She is just so much smaller than the RIR, black Australorps, Easter Eggers and others that came with the batch. I love her big eyes and dainty head. I call her Dovey.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Silver Spangled Hamburg.

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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
