Sebright Bantam

Well, aren't these little guys sweet! Sebrights are a very special breed of bantam chicken in that the males and females have exactly the same feathering. It took Sir John Sebright over 30 years to develop this trait. 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.
