    Well, if you're looking for a 'showbird', the girls should be Gypsy-Faced, that's all I know about Show Sebrights, but if you are, like I would be, in search of a good bird, try and pick birds with firm feeling undercarriage, rather stocky, not to the extent of Wyandottes or Cochins, but not sickly shaped. These traits, in my experience, apply to the broodiest birds.
    Hope this helps.
