    My rooster free ranges with the rest of the flock and i haven't had any problems with him flying off. However, he must have traveled far from whoever owned him before me since no one within a 10mi radius of where he was found claimed him. Kinda like with the mystery peacock that showed up in my yard last month, I just make sure to feed him well, give him a safe place and hens, and so far he's stuck around (almost a year now). I guess there's really no way to tell if they're going to take off or stick around, though, and the possibility is always there if you let them free range.

    We got a young rooster from the local feed store and was told he is a sebright. Everything matches up except he has a straight comb not a rosy comb. He is a wonderful little guy who comes inside at night and sleeps next to the three girls that have grown up sleeping inside. He has a cute crow and he also calls the girls over when there is food available. During the day he free ranges with the rest of the flock, gets along with the other roosters and doesn't run when you come near. Definitely a good addition to our flock and hope that eventually we will get some good offspring from him.

    He sure has the markings and stature of a Sebright. I wonder if he is a mix with really dominant Sebright genes?

    He's so CUTE with that over-sized comb. It kind of reminds me of a little boy wearing his daddy's shoes.

    Those are handsome roosters! They have a lot of black in their feathers (which I think looks cool [​IMG]). What age are they?

    My other 2 Sebrights both layed today! All 3 hens I have had layed by 5.5 months old. The first to lay is giving us a perfect little white egg everyday. Hopefully the others will do the same! A lot of people told me don't expect eggs from them till next spring and very few at that.....so far they all have been wrong.
