    I'm new to this site and I've got gold and silver sebrights and I now all about them and is this is unusual for my gold sebright hen to go broody?

    [​IMG] does she stay on the eggs most of the day? Do you have a rooster? If not the eggs wouldn't be fertile and will never hatch

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined us! That's a very pretty hen. I'm afraid Sebrights is one of the "non-broody" breeds, i.e. they are very unlikely to go broody, though there are always exceptions.

    I've got a rooster and she stayed in the eggs nearly all day and she stayed on them the full 21 days and out of 8 or 9 3 hatched and she is a good mother too and she isn't that old about 12 months and a bit old
