    Hmm... Good question, I have no idea. Maybe a mix of them both?

    Speckled gold. I do believe Golden Seabrights came out of Silver Seabrights through breeding.

    I was wondering if it would blend the color? or if they would be the same color in percentages?
    I am raising some of each and I am about to seperate them so I figured as a experiment I would leave a hen of different color in both pens.... time will tell.

    Golden roo over silver hen is sexlinked so you would get golden hens and terribly smutty coloured/marked silver roos with gold and other off colour feathers. Silver roo over golden hen doesn't really throw anything definable........

    Silver sebright male over golden sebright male ought to give, broadly speaking, Silver (laced) females & yellowish intermediate coloured (laced) males.
