I agree, I hope Urucuba *meant* it nicer than it came out.
She's a prettypretty bird and green blue/eggs too --- yaaay!
I am quite fond of non-silkie Fm birds.
Yeah guys, you took that harshly.
She looks good. Traits of egg laying from Silkies and Sebright-silkie-cross are that they are traditionally poor layers. Then, a cross between a Sebright and a Silkie will not be able to fetch as much money for the offspring as you would a purebred. I was just adding it together.
The fact that she lays almost everyday is great, as Sebrights and Silkies normally don't.
My remark wasn't meant to hurt feelings. I was just adding facts up. I think she is a striking bird.
Probably crossing the Silkie in there will make a more friendly Sebright, as many seem to think that they are more jumping and flighty than other breeds. I tend to agree.
I have both Silkies and Sebrights on my property, and love them both. Unfortunately, the Sebrights are most jumpy. Only my Chukars are more jumpy. Even my Guinea Fowl are friendlier. I hope it is just the strain, and I am looking for more friendlier Sebrights so that IF it is the strain, I don't have to sell ones that will be flighty and jumpy birds and have flighty and jumpy offspring. Wow, that was a long sentence, and even longer post.
