    Gallatin / Portland TN,
    i purchased a few chicks today from a lady that said they are "game bantams" she also said she doesnt know anything about Bantams the coloring makes me think they may be Golden Seabrights. I was wondering if any of yall might raise seabrights and could tell me if this is what they look like at 3 weeks old or if i am just wishing ..middle and left in picture

    Thanks

    loveourbirds. The pics that I've seen of "Lemon Blues" were much lighter blue. A lot like my LG roo. But, I was told "This is a lemon blue" in this thread, and the pic looked identical to my LG roo, soooo I was a bit confused. The yellow/blonde of his hackle/neck didn't show well in my camera pics, so maybe that was it? I never received another comment from that poter, after I posted what I just wrote. Bantams are really a lot of fun as they tend toward being so much more "tame-able"/ Mine seem to want attention and petting much more than my larger birds. being the "Flower Garden of the Poultry World" doesn't hurt a bit.

    Sorry, those look nothing like either my Goldens are Silvers. I don't see the lacing that a Sebright has from the very 1st feathers.

    that lemon blue is a little lighter blue than he appears in that pic. about the same blue as the brassy blue. my lemon blue does have some yellow lacing on the breast, the picture shows that. im not sure if that's good or bad, give me a few minutes to smoke a cigarette and look it up and ill let you know how Baldwin's describes it.
