    Some of my sebright girls
    I have a few sebright/bantam cochin mixes but they always run when I try to get close enough for pictures they are pretty tho.

    Frigga has really nice bold lacing. Cute girls looks like they got mostly Sebright traits except for the comb/wattles. Are they a bit larger than purebred Sebrights?

    I have wondered what Stewart's offspring would look like if he was able to fertilize our standard hens. If he figures out how to do the deed we wouldn't be opposed to letting some of the eggs hatch :) We really do want him to find him a nice Sebright girl but mixes are fascinating to me also.

    I really wanted to get my little Sebright dude some females of the same breed because I love the way they look. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any in my state (which makes me wonder where the heck he flew in from) but he did end up with some Golden Laced Polish ladies that offered some really interesting mixes:

    [​IMG]
    Memnoch - we're having teenager issues with him right now; he ended up not too much taller than his Sebright father, but he has a lot more weight on him.

    Mercury - she takes after her father's Sebright personality a lot; very independent and stubborn and kinda bossy sometimes. :)

    I would still love to be able to get some female Sebrights in the future, but I'm delighted with my first ever hatching results. If for nothing else, I love the partial crest/mohawk and how they flare it up when they're not happy.

    She looks great to me!
    I like the poofy head that still allows for you to see her face. Add the lacing & you've got a real beauty.

    Thank you very much! The poofy head/face gives her an irritated look sometimes (or that's just how she looks when I'm messing with her instead of feeding them treats).

    I got them mixed up the dark one is Sigyn, Frigga is more like Hel. Sigyn is awesome tho, she occasionally goes broody.
    This is Spike a Sebright mix, I have no idea on gender but I think female tho, hackle feathers are rounded and her brother is crowing and getting girls ,started a couple months ago.
    Spike does not crow at all. Spike is a Sebright/ EE-cochin mix

    This is Spikes brother Angel a couple weeks ago... All man lol

    Odin and Hel are the smallest and have the best combs,they have lovely posture when they choose to, they are all hatchery quality but I don't care. They make some lovely babies.and they are pretty.

    Spike( sebright/EE-cochin) and Idunn(sebright/cochin)

    Trying to get better pictures of the mix babies but I swear I am having a run of bad luck with them. Last attempt got this

    [​IMG]

    And then my phone died.... I will try again when the sun comes up.... At least you can see the sebright/cochin mixed are heavier built than the others

    Sounds like mine aren't unique in the running from the camera department!
