    Hello, I was wondering if sebright bantams have any different needs than a normal hen does? Is the cockerel really loud?


    Thanks, Luke.
     
  2. I recently found out that I have Buff Seabright bantams. They are hatchery stock. I have never had Seabrights before. I have 3 pullets and 2 cockerels. Both cockerels crow and have done so for several weeks. It is a faint (not loud) crow compared to even a bantam cochin for comparisons sake. MIne are 13 weeks old. I don't know of any specific needs that a Seabright hen has.

    I hope this helps answer your question.

    That did certainly answer my question! :) You got a nice looking bird there :) I was thinking of getting 6 silver sebrights(1M/5F) in there own enclosure not with the larger fowl. I know a breeder who has these from day old to POL so I might invest in some :)

    Thanks, Luke.
     
  4. They are small birds for sure. I love the steel Blue legs. Mine eat out of our hands.

    I have a hen and a cockerel in with 40 other birds of various breeds. They get along fine. The cockerel is one of two cockerels and is the dominant one. He is a gentleman and guards his flock well. He also points out where to get food when foraging. I like him a lot. He is loud but not obnoxious.
