Sebright Griffin by Reptangle Sebright Griffin by Reptangle
I airbrushed this female griffin like a silver-lace Sebright chicken. Silver Sebrights are a breed of bantam chicken that have pure white feathers, each individually decorated with an iridescent black edge.
They look like they have been painted... just like this griffin.
This griffin is in our online shop right now:

I rescue roosters, and have wanted to work with a sebright for years!  You've done a fantastic job rendering each individual feather with that intricate lacing and iridescence!  Beautiful- just gorgeous!!

 I had several pet Sebrights. Really pretty,  and the roosters are fairly nice, for roosters. Not the smartest, though.

Haha, I have a Polish who's a little... "special".  I had a Rhode Island boy that was a HUGE dork, but he was my buddy, as he'd make CERTAIN to cuddle with me every day.

I love roosters. It is such a joy to watch them interacting with their flock. My Polish seemed retarded too, not sure if it was the fact he couldn't see or if that it is a particularly stupid breed. I started keeping his hair trimmed, but he didn't seem to get any smarter.

I keep my Polish's "hair" tied up so he can see.  It seems to alleviate some of his neurotic behaviours, and definitely cuts his aggression- I think he feels a need to overcompensate when he can't see.  I've talked with some Polish keepers, and the neurotic behaviour seems to be a breed trait- though it's hard to say if it's the breed itself, or the seeing issue.  He was three years old when I got him, and terribly shy- now he trusts me enough to take treats from my hand, and only mildly complains when I pick him up at night to put him to bed.
