Silver Sebright

Sebrights are very pretty little birds, their striking appearance makes them a firm favourite with visitors to our farm.

Named after its creator, Sir John Saunders Sebright, the Sebright is a true bantam with no large fowl counterpart. One of the oldest bantam breeds, its history goes back over 150 years.

Bred as an ornamental breed, it is of small stature with a short back, proportionally large breast and downward-pointing wings, that create an angular, jaunty look.

We have Silver and Gold varieties of this popular bird and we think ours are good examples of the breed. Their lacing is fine an uniform.

Fertility can be an issue for Sebrights and it is common practice to run multiple cockerels with a group of hens. We do this without any aggression between the cock birds.

If you're looking for a small, pretty bird for your collection, you should certainly consider the Sebright.
