    I'm surprised no one has responded to this. I too am looking for more info on gold sebrights. = ) Do you have any pics? How old? Mine are 2-4 wks. I picked up 6 chicks, 4 red pullets and 2 assorted bantams. I picked one with pretty gold wings and the darkest one in the bunch. The rest of the crowd looked to be OEGB's. It turns out the two I picked out were Gold sebrights, at least I'm pretty sure the darker one is too. It just doesn't look like it's going to have as pretty patterning and color as the one that had gold wings, or she is mixed? I'm not sure. . .I'm all new to this..lol. Here are some pics though. = )

    This is the darker one, which you can tell has gotten more gold in it over the last week compared to the first picture. = )

    They are really pretty. [​IMG]Mine are just about 1 week and alot smaller than that. I dont have any pics because i cant hook my camera up. When they are older i think they might be good show birds. If you are interested in shows.

    I was worriedd about mareks, but I got home and she was fine again. I went to TSC right away to get some meds and electrolytes though, just in case. I hope she stays well now. It was a sad morning, especially wondering what to expect when I got home. I feel much btter now.
