    Here is my seabright hen. Have no idea how old she is or anything. We got her at a small animal auction where the cages go with the animal and my husband wanted the cage she was in. He figured another banty in the flock wouldn't hurt anything. I had always heard seabrights were super flighty but this girl is sweet natured and will come up to me. If I reach out for her she steps away, but isn't scared and doesn't run. She came with a rooster that had the wrong kind of comb (straight). Unfortunately my dog killed him [​IMG]

    I have two Silver Sebright cockerels and one pullet, plus a Golden Sebright pullet. The cockerels are little bastids (said lovingly) and the pullets are sweeties. The silver girl will eat out of my hand, the golden will come very close but doesn't quite reach to eat from my hand. She'll hover right close and eat what falls to the ground right next to me.

    This is a rather foreshortened angle shot of Alex on the top of the six foot chain link fence.

    Alex again, sidling suggestively up to Gilda the EE pullet on that same fence.

    George, posing prettily - before he developed his flamboyant (non-standard) two longer tailfeathers. Notice his neck feathers are less defined, as well.

    George, again, once his two fancy tailfeathers had grown out.

    My favorite shot of Alice in front of Joy and Delilah in the background.

    Much earlier photo of Alex and George, with Charlie the bantam Buff Brahma.

    Quote:Actually, I didn't - that's a sun flare in the camera! More of than not, when I try to catch Alex just right to photograph him with those two longer feathers, he's moving too fast to get a good shot of 'em!

    Sebright males shouldn't have long "rooster like" feathering they are hen feathered. Pointed hackle & saddle feathers & long sickle feathers are a disqualification in Sebrights.

    i know that... i was the first one that posted pics of my baby sebrights... but i just asked why it was edited out... i edit photos all day long... that doesn't look like a sun glare to me... but i dunno what type of camera they used...

    but still... a sebright with long tail feathers to me... would look nice... i wouldn't mind having one, but i wouldn't breed him... but still... very handsome roo...
