A very warm welcome to the website of The Sebright Club. The Sebright bantam was named after its developer, Sir John Saunders Sebright, an English politician and agricultural innovator. It is one of the oldest recorded British 'true bantams' - meaning it is a miniature bird with no corresponding large version of the breed. It was created early in the 19th century through a selective breeding program designed to produce an ornamental breed and one of undeniably stunning beauty.
Membership costs £8 per year and an application form can be found under 'CONTACT US'. You will receive two newsletters each year, have unlimited access to this website and the membership fee also goes towards providing rosettes and prize cards at Shows, amongst many other benefits. 2012 was a very special year for us as we celebrated 200 years of The Sebright Club - the very first Poultry Club of its kind. We produced a Special Anniversary Yearbook and there are still some limited copies available.
If you need new or replacement birds, we have a daily update on breeders across the country with stock for sale 'FACT' - 'BREEDERS DIRECTORY'. Just get in touch via the Contact Form or give Jamie Robinson, our Secretary, a ring on 01406 351092 or email email@example.com . We are there to offer support and advice - whether it is a welfare concern you may have, problems with breeding and hatching, housing, genetics or anything else. Alternatively you can always just ring for a friendly informal chat!
'IN THE NEWS' will keep you up to speed with Sebright successes up and down the country - and if you are thinking of keeping this breed, it will point you in the direction of forthcoming Regional and Club Shows where you will be able to pick the brains of breeders and exhibitors alike.
Don't forget to have a go at the Competition ('FUN') - and there is always the Gallery - 'PHOTOS' - to have a look at some of the Country's prize-winning birds, Sebright people and much-loved Sebright pets.
'Gordon Sebright' is on Facebook with over 2,700 friends from across the world; on Twitter '@GordonSebright'. And you can read his antics in the Diary, under 'FICTION'.
So if you have just two little Sebrights in the garden as companions - or breed and show with great success - you are all most welcome to join our Club and by doing so we can ensure that the interest and longevity of this breed will continue for at least another 200 years.
