    We got these chicks in the bantam bin at the local feed store back in April.

    I could never figure out what she was but recently someone mentioned Seabrights. I looked at pictures and I think she might be one. Anyone else have a guess or think I'm right? Seabright? If so what kind.

    Thank you. We had a matching roo for the seabright but culled him because he was so mean and nasty!

    Some Sebright cockerels can be feisty little devils.

    We ended up with only seven hens out of 20 chicks. We culled out any who were mean (breaking the skin). We ended up eating a lot of chicken for a bit. We ended up with one BR roo, The guy above who is very predatory aware and makes sure everyone knows something is up.

    The last one is a .. not sure what he is but think he is a silver laced cochin?

    Someone suggest that the girl might be an Wheaten Old English Game

    That someone was wrong.


    agree your bird is a buff Sebright. Different comb, leg color, feather color.

    Your last pic does look like a silver laced cochin. They're such eye candy!

    I googled the Wheaten. They look different than my girl (she is a girl, right?)

    So happy now that I know what we have.
    1 BR roo
    1 BR hen
    2 Production Reds hens
    1 Australorpe hen
    3 Mutts that look just like the Australorpe hens
    and the two above.

    Me too.

    The Silver-laced bird is a Silver Laced Cochin.
