Pretty Sebright Feathers

Sydney is a Sebright, a bantam breed of chicken. The males of the Sebright breed are hen-plumed. There is no difference in how the roosters and hens are feathered. If the roosters didn't have their distinctive combs and wattles, you probably would be unable to tell the difference between a male and female Sebright.
