    Sebright Bantam breed of chicken got its name from John Sebright, Member of Parliament for Hertfordshire who was into breeding chickens among other animals. He developed this breed that is now considered by the American Bantam Association as one of the most popular bantam chicken breed among nine others.

    Male Sebrights usually weigh in at 625 grams while females at 570 grams. They typical stand really small with their short backs. Noticeable are their large breasts and their wings that point downward. Their simple usual color of black and white with the black color surrounding just the side of every feather makes them look really beautiful in a simple way. They also have a golden version with the same arrangement of colors. It is consistent with their kind nature. But when around the hens, male Sebrights are most likely to be protective.

    An ornamental chicken, the Sebrights are not good for egg production because they only lay around 60-80 creamy but small eggs each season.
