    I am so excited. I finally found some Golden Sebrights after looking for months. I got my Golden Sebright hen at TSC this spring. Since then, I have been looking for more of them. I was at an auction last night. A group of people were standing around talking about chickens. I told them I was looking for some Golden Sebrights. A woman (who happens to be my Mother's cousin) said she had three hens and a rooster she would sell me. I went there tonight and picked them up. I don't think they are as pretty as my first hen, but then I love her so much. I do have a question about the rooster. He isn't as golden as the girls. All of the Golden Sebrights rooster that I have seen online look like the hens. Please let me know what you think.

    The males should be hen feathered with just a larger comb to tell the sexes apart. But this is pretty common in non show quality birds.

    I am wanting to raise them to show down the road. I guess I need to get a better rooster. Thanks

    The hens are definitly purebreds, but pet quality ones. The roo on the other hand is no doubt a crossbreed.

    Yea, the rooster is a mixed breed.

    I will be working on better hens and finding a better rooster. There aren't any Sebright breeders around me. The only place I have found to get them is at a hatchary. Does anyone know where I can get show quality ones? I want ones that will be good to show at the county fair.
