Breed Details:
The Sebright males are "hen-feathered". This means that the roos don't have sickle feathers but rather smooth, hen-like feathers heading down the back toward the tail. Though beautiful and intriguing, the Sebright can be difficult to raise. They tend to be flighty, the hens don't lay many eggs and rarely brood, and the chicks have a higher mortality rate. Despite these downfalls, Sebright breeders are extremely passionate for them keeping substantial numbers turning out for the poultry shows. Backyard flock owners also enjoy having a few peck around the yard. They are fun to watch and make quite an impression. I'd say their popularity is here to stay. Thanks to PurpleFrog, Year of the Rooster and LittleChickenRacingTeam for their beautiful photos.
