    How does one go about obtaining show quality birds? I just love the golden laced sebrights and would love to have some great birds to show. I ordered 15 from a hatchery, but I know that bets are they won't be show quality.

    Here's one place I found, just wasn't sure:
    http://greenfirefarms.com/store/category/chickens/sebright/

    their birds are beautiful, just a bit high in price I think. BUT, I am considering....

    I have never ordered from them but if you look at their auctions they make some big bucks on what they sell. Their name and stock carries alot of weight in the poultry world.
    You could call and talk to them

    IMO they charge too much for those... I bet if you shopped around you could find good or better stock cheaper than if you bought from there.

    Quote:REALLY?? How do you go about finding about their auctions? Their birds are gorgeous, and they state they are show quality.

    This is the Sebright Club of America website. You should be able to find nice breeder quality Sebrights from a member there. Hatchery Sebrights are very different from good breeder quality Sebrights.

    Sorry to say the birds shown are extremely poor examples of the breed, too long in the back, a lot of bad combs, combs incorrect colour especially the females, and generally very poor lacing.

    Quote:I agree with blackdotte and would also like to add that the roosters have all full long hackles. Sebright roosters should not have hackles that are extending past the shoulders if they do then there a DQ (to me the Gold Sebright roosters I see on there look to be DQ's).

    Quote:Do you know if he has a website? Did a search for him, and didn't find a whole lot. I'd love to see his Sebrights.

    Edit: Just noticed he's a member of the Sebright club.
