    Any Sebright experts out there, please help! I've got this little Sebright and I'm really hoping "she" is in fact a she. The size of the comb is throwing me, but color-wise it's still yellow and no red. Wattles are nonexistent at this point. I'm hopeful someone can help me determine the gender of this baby.

    It's still a bit early to know for certain at this age, but it looks like a pullet.

    It might be too early to tell.
    Are you sure that even is a Sebright, though? Maybe it's just the angle but its comb looks completely wrong to me.

    She is a Sebright. I know she's got a single comb and should have a rose comb. But after quite a bit of research, I've found that it's an anomaly frequently found in hatchery chicks. I'm not going to show her or breed (she's my house pet),and I prefer single combed birds so I'm happy with it ;). But yes, I was confused as well. Haha
