    My young sebright roo has very big sickel fethers what should I do? I noticed it around last month and they are just getting longer but he looks like a pure breed what caused that to happen?[​IMG]

    Hello I have owned many sebright roosters, and as I raised them I learned that their sickle feathers will typically grow pretty long, it just depends on his genetics.. I have had many of my sebright roos sickle feathers grow almost as big as their body.. That doesn't mean you bird is not purebred... By the way that is a very nice looking roo!!
