    Need help identifying breed & gender for this young bird. I'm a newbie to chickens. I'm learning a lot from BYC. Thank-you!

    Where did you get it? Looks like a mix. Similar shape and size to one of mine...golden sebright. Good luck!

    Also looks like a pullet.

    It's not a Golden Sebright. The only real characteristic this bird shares with a Sebright is size. Golden Sebrights have very bright gold-red feathers with strong black lacing as well as very distinctive rose combs. I agree with everyone else, I think it's a mixed pullet.

    Probably a mix. I'd guess that she has some Old English Game in her.

    Looks like a Sebright or Serama mix breed by the size and type of the bird. Maybe has game in her as well.

    Definitely a girl.

    Thanks everyone. Nessabelle, I got her from a neighbor. He has a lot of different breeds. He gave me several White Laced Red Cornish Bantams, a small black hen with four chicks and this one.
    • Wyandottes7 & Iuvmychix she does look like she has some Old English Game and Black Star in her. What ever she is she's different.
