Silver Sebright

    Here are our Silver Sebrights from MMH. We received them as day-olds on May 14, 2007 along with 5 Easter Eggers, 5 Mottled Cochins, 5 Blue/Black/Splash Silkies, 2 Black Tailed Buff Japanese and our free rare breed Silver Spangled Hamburg.
    We ordered them mainly for the unique black lacing on their wings and everyone who sees them make a fuss over their coloration and sleek, "road-runner"-like build. I find them to be very personable and curious and occassionally flighty ( I think it's because they are smaller than everyone but the Buff Japs and lower in the pecking order).

    They looked alot like the Silver Spangled Hamburg chick except that he was bigger and the wing markings were definately different.
