    Today I bought 4 bantams, 3 silver silver seabrights, and a milli fleur d uccle...I think.[​IMG]

    They are still fairly young, but I believe the MFDU, is a rooster.

    I am tempting to attach the following pics, let me know if they work.

    BTW: The brown one has tufts of feathers around his face,(bearded).[​IMG]

    Are you sure they are Silver Sebrights? I thought Sebrights don't have pointed feathers on the males.

    I agree, they are all males. We got 6 bantam chicks and only 2 out of the 6 are girls. [​IMG] Now you have an excuse to get some more!

    I am pretty sure you got the breeds right, and I am sad to say that they are all roosters.

    I have a Mille Fleur D'uccle and she's a sweethearts...

    And I had a golden sebright rooster who is with foster parents right now until we can get land.

    This is what my golden sebright rooster looks like

    And this is what my MFD pullet loos like

    o

    HEEEELP !!!

    I can only have maybe 5!
    I live on a 1 acre lot in the middle of a swarm of neighborhoods,I have 4 full grown hens, a back linx (poor thing got her eye poked out and a few of the others pecked her, so she has been separated), a RIR,(missing both front toenails), and 2 other black ones, a rooster(strange bird), and 3 barred rock chicks( hoping to put with the older ones in a few months). I love the seabrights, and the MDFU, but I'm worried about noise, what should I do?[​IMG][​IMG]

    Are you sure they are Silver Sebrights?

    Really not sure!

    How can you tell if their male or female?​

    If they are sebrights this should help show that they are roos

    Now, I had to give up my roosters. We gave them to chicken foster parents who have more land and more chickens then us.

    If you are like us, having roosters in a neighborhood where you aren't supposed to have any, is not a good thing.
