    Our sebrights love bananas and tonight I had some fun feeding them! I wasn't even ready yet and they jumped up and bit it out of my hand(they free range) so I turned on cam and this is what i got!

    X2. Mine started laying at about 20 weeks and that was the height of summer. I have an enclosed coop but they really enjoy all the high places.

    Yes, bananas are a favorite treat around here, too!

    That's cute. I'll have to try banana again. (Tried once & mine didn't really go for it.) Most of the flock here will jump for bread.

    I really like the way your golden sebrights look.

    Thank you! Our ratio is currently terrible, 4 roos to 3 hens and one baby just hatched(unknown sex)...We'll keep them all as long as they don't fight each other, they already run the entire yard chasing ducks and other free rangers LOL, until we can build up to a better ratio...They are some of the sweetest, smallest birds we have with Jersey Giant sized attitudes! Next spring we plan to introduce silver laced as well...

    Cute video! And I have just the opposite of you, 4 hens and 3 roos. Just 8 weeks old, and I was hoping for 5/2, but the one I was unsure about finally revealed his red comb. How old are yours?

    Mine loves them, too! Unfortunately, so does my peacock and that's a battle my little guy just doesn't engage in. :)

    I have four young sebright mixes that have run of the yard. While I do have multiple other hens, in that mini-flock I only have one hen to three roosters. However, so far, none of the roosters are fighting, which is nice. They love to follow me around and are really talkative.


    I call them the Twilights
