The Sebright is one of the oldest recorded British ‘true’ bantam (meaning it is a miniature bird with no corresponding large fowl to which it is related), created in the 19th century through a selective breeding program designed to produce an ornamental breed.The first poultry breed to have its own specialist club for enthusiasts, Sebrights were admitted to poultry exhibition standards not long after their establishment. Both the males and females have exactly the same feathering. In almost every other breed of chicken, the flamboyant feathering of males is easy to distinguish from the females. Sebrights are popular amongst poultry enthusiasts for their sweet nature and beautiful plumage. Mountain Valley View Farm has both Golden and Silver Sebrights.
