The Silver Sebright Bantam emerged in England around 1810. Sir John Saunders Sebright spent 30 years developing this true breed. The Silver Sebright Bantam was admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1874.
The Sebright breed is known as a true breed because it is not related to any other standard breed. The hen and the cockerels have the same rose comb, feathering and very close in size as well. The cockerel weighs in around 22 ounces and the hen around 20 ounces. This breed is also not very cold hardy and will do much better in warmer climates.
The Silver Sebright Bantam is a very active, courageous bird that acts larger than they are. This breed is not very docile which makes them not broody and non-setters. The Sebright is also known for its large wings which enable them to fly. This breed is also very hard to breed and hatch. Mostly the Silver Sebright Bantam is known for being an ornamental bird, it also is a great bird to raise and show.
