Many Congratulations to Jamie Robinson, our hard working Club Secretary, on winning Best Sebright with his stunning Silver Pullet at The National.
Well Done Jamie!
Well Done Jamie!
Everyone is most welcome to be part of our club - whether you have one or two Sebrights running around the garden (and almost inevitably becoming part of your family) or several more - and breed and show with great success! A membership application form can be found under the 'Contact Us' section if you would like to join the Sebright Club.
Membership includes newsletters, prize cards and rosettes at shows, help and support with sourcing new stock or advice on health and breeding - amongst many other benefits. 2012 was a very special year for the Sebright Club as in 1812 it held its first members' show in London and we produced a Special Anniversary yearbook to celebrate 200 years of the existence of The Sebright Club - which is thought to be the very first poultry club of its kind. The Yearbook is still available to buy and has excellent and informative articles on the breed and all things Sebright.
Our Autumn 2014 newsletter is hot off the press and available to Sebright Club members, either via email or by post. Keep up with the latest news and show results - a perfect read for an autumnal evening by the fireside.
On the website we have a new competition (under the 'Fun' section) - have a go at composing a short seasonal poem about the breed and the top entries will be published on a dedicated page. Gordon Sebright (you can read his Diary in the 'Fiction' part) is on Facebook and Twitter with over 2500 friends from all over the world. And thanks to fellow fanciers we are able to put show results on the site whenever possible.
And what is there not to love about the Sebright? It is a stunningly beautiful bird, full of character - with a personality that matches its strutting demeanour and contrary to belief they can be very tame and friendly and not 'flighty' if handled with care and affection from a young age. You will find they will grow into charming adults that will be more than happy to content themselves around the garden. Given the chance they will happily roost in the branches of nearby trees however - but a real plus point is that they are non-destructive - so that damage to your prize plants is minimal!
