    Here's a pic of the Sebbies I got. They're about 6 months old now. I'm suppose to have 2 boys and 2 girls, but I really have no idea how to tell, so we'll see when breeding season rolls around.

    Absolutely beautiful! I want some Sebastopols badly. When you breed them, do they breed true or do you have to breed to a non curly bird also? Some breeds are funny about the genetics of it.

    Sebastopols are a recognized APA breed.
    They breed true.
    You don't have to breed smooth x curly.
    They have no lethal genetic defects
    but commonly have issues with "twisted wing tip',
    not to be confused with angel wing.
    TWT is most likely caused by their unique feather mutation.
    Some people theorize that breeding smooth x curly varieties reduces the occurrence TWT but as far as I know there is no empirical evidence to back that theory up.
    There is information on my wesites sales page on TWT.
