    I was just wondering if there is such thing as a standard Seabright? If not how would someone go trying to breed one, any ideas?

    The "Standard" Sebright IS a true bantam, there is no "large fowl" sized Sebright.

    Quote:No, like gryeyes said "standard" which correctly refers to what the breed Standard calls for, not the size of the bird, so your question is are there any Large Fowl Seabrights and the answer is no, Seabrights are "True Bantams", so Seabrights and other true bantams like Dutch, dAnvers, dUccles, etc do not have Large Fowl counter parts.

    And since the Standard doesnt call for Seabrights to be Large Fowl, then technically you cant make them, but in round about ways you maybe able to make a slender, hen feathered, silver laced, rose combed, large fowl bird, just not a technical Seabright.
