    I picked 4 bantams and thought all were seabrights but one is turning out to be something different any ideas? S(he)has a very red head compared to others and no lacing on feathers.

    I think you have both silver and golden seabrights.

    It'll probably get lacing later on. Does it have the same comb as the others?

    You have four beautiful little Golden Sebrights. :love Even chicks within the same breed and variety can show widely varying down color.

    Super cute. Are they supposed to be pullets or mix run?

    They were a mixed run. Maybe one looks different than other because it is a different sex?

    Sebrights aren't a sex-linked breed. :) Only comb and wattles are indicators of gender with these guys. :D

    Both sexes of sebright are "henny "feathered, The males look just like the demales except for comb & wattles as Alexandra has mentioned above.

    Not that per se, those birds will vary in color within the same clutch. I got this thing about long legs on a chick (Do not make jokes about this comment) that go straight up to its butt. We had a Bantam Roo that ruled the roost within a flock of large heritage chickens. He took no lip off of any of those girls. He'd get all "Ike Turner" on them girls at the drop of a hat.
