Sebright

The Sebright is a true bantam and for this reason it is best suited for ornamental purposes only. This breed originated in England and, like other smaller bantams, it is a poor egg producer as it only averages 140-160 eggs per year. Following generations of inbreeding, the Sebright’s egg fertility success rate is also considered to be quite poor, despite this, they do make good mothers of young chicks. The Sebright is an active, spirited bird which makes it a great flight risk, and therefore, the Sebright is not recommended for beginner poultry keepers.
