    Hello, I got a Sebright mixed chicken and I wondered what kind of egg laying I can expect from her. She's so tiny even though she's mixed. She looks like she's mixed with a Polish Crest or silky. Even though she's tiny...she is very tough and the other chickens are afraid of her...she's still a baby making peeping noises but she has all her feathers. Thanks...

    Where did you get her and are you sure she is mixed?

    I got her from a random gal who has a backyard farm. She said she was a Sebright and the description I saw of a Sebright tells me she must be a mix. All the other chickens I got from this gal are polish crest and silkie mixes so I'm guessing this little one is a mix too. I could be wrong though...here are a couple pics. The gal said she was a female (hope she is!) Tell me if you think she is mixed or not. I don't know anything about this breed of chicken. This is a tiny little bird. Thank you for any input [​IMG]

    my seabrights were excellent layers, but had rotten attitudes so i sold them.

    ETA: i would say silky cross due to feathered legs

    Cute yes. Sebright no. She may be a mix Sebright seem to lay well through the summer but are pretty much closed for business in the winter.

    Quote:Sounds right. I can see the Silkie more than the Sebright. Neither breed is noted for their egg laying so I wouldn't expect much from a cross.

    Quote:I agree, they should be friendlier! i "replaced" them with silver laced wyandottes (bantam and standard size) so i still have something black/white laced, IMO they are just as beautiful [​IMG] and much better attitudes.

    Thanks everyone [​IMG] Does the bird look like a "she" ? What do the Roos look like in this breed? I was told she was a she! Yes, I think she's got a lot of silkie in her. She is jet black and really a pretty little thing.
