    Can my golden seabright have silver babies or just gold ones?

    They breed true, a gold will always throw gold.

    You can have sexlink babies if you cross a Silver sebright hen with a Golden sebright rooster, I have been told the hen chicks will be very nice golds and can be used in gold breeding without any ill effects while the male chicks of that cross will be very badly marked silvers with the occasional gold feather.

    A breeder told me thats what he does so his Golds don't get too inbred.

    They are true breed. Gold Sebrights will always make gold chicks.
