    Hi everyone!

    I was wondering if someone that has access to a standard of perfection can give me a little info on the standard for silver sebrights?

    I have a pullet that I am interested in showing if she meets the criteria. This is my first year raising sebrights so I am kind of clueless! [​IMG]

    Where did you get her from? The rooster in my avatar is from Ideal. As you can see, he's definitely not show quality, but beautiful nonetheless [​IMG] If you could post a picture, we could help you out and tell you what faults we see.

    Quote:Here's a link to an old Standard (1910) It hasn't changed much over the years, and will give you a good starting point.

    I am not entirely sure where she came from, not from a breeder that's for sure. I have a feeling she *might* be from Privett.

    I don't expect her to be show quality. I just want to know if she is at least good enough to take for a fair! I am kind of a hobby poultry exhibitor. [​IMG]

    Ah, I see. If you do decide to exhibit her, I wish you luck [​IMG]
