that's great news.. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.. mine is 4.5 months old.. so there is HOPE! LOL
I love mine. I got eighteen golden sebrights and two little white birds from tractor supply this spring. They were labeled just as bantams so what they grew into was a surprise. They are beautiful and most of them have very friendly personalities, the others are a little skittish. A couple of them always run right over to say hello whenever I go to see them, even when they were little. I can't keep Roos in my town so I processed those when they were about 10 weeks old. They are delicious and each make a hearty meal for one person - think Cornish game hens. I currently get 5-11 little eggs per day from my 13 girls but it's been really hot here and I think a couple of them are still learning. Some do like to squawk a bit but the sound doesn't carry too far.
I love these breed. I hope someday I can keep silver and gold coloration in the future.
He might be mixed! I have a cockerel that is a Sebright/Polish mix that ended up with mostly Sebright features except for size and comb (and the partial crest):
Now that is a beautiful mix. Wonder what genes would be dominant if he were to mate with a primarily black or white Polish?
I would love to find out someday, when my financial situation is less drained by medical expenses. He and his sister were the first eggs I've ever hatched and I am in love with the way they turned out. I was surprised that they ended up with the Sebright colouring (their moms are Golden Laced Polish), but they do have the slightest bit of a very light tan in a few of their whites. They definitely got the attitude of the Sebright, that's for sure!
Here's our little "Trouble" again. She's seems to be growing only in personality. Great flyer. I stopped trying to catch her. I simply grab a cup of treats & walk to where I want her to go. Often it results in a chicken parade, but those are fun too. Trouble's BFF is Bubbles, a calm docile Dominque who loves to be held. If I need Trouble to get back into her cage ASAP, I put her buddy away. Within 5-10 sec, both are ready for bed - even if it's 2pm.
Here's Bubbles asking to be picked up.
Those are nice chickens!
I can't help but love the sebrights, even if they are difficult to handle sometimes. They are just so unique compared to the rest.
