    I raised these chicks from a breeder this spring and was wondering if anyone could tell me what they thought, Breed quality, of them. I know the pics aren't real good, I will try to get better ones later when my son gets back from his fathers. Thanks

    A close-up of the combs would be good... Sebrights' combs are supposed to go up off the head in the back.

    Also, they should be hen-feathered.

    roosters look like hens so to say, no long hackle or saddle feathers.

    Quote:In a Sebright, the tail feathers and hackle feathers are all rounded in shape on the ends, not pointy.

    Here's my sebright roo. The only difference between him and a hen should be the larger comb and wattles.

    Oooo. Very nice rooster Lilpeeps. Yes, a larger pic. of the sebrights would be nice. Also, those 3 Sebrights all look like roosters.
