    Wondering how old are Sebs when they get their curly feathers?

    My girl is about 8 weeks old and had curling on her breast at 5 weeks.
    It is possible that you have a smooth Sebastopol (they just look like Embdens).

    Mine started just before 2 months old. Mine are 2 1/2 months old and are beautiful. Here is a picture of one of them.
