A very warm welcome to The Sebright Club of Great Britain. 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.

Our newsletters are available to paid-up members of the club and you will have unlimited access to this website. The membership fee also goes towards providing rosettes and prize cards at Shows, amongst many other benefits.
Last year we celebrated 210 years of The Sebright Club - which was the very first poultry club of its kind.
If you need new or replacement stock contact Robin who has a current list of breeders from across the country with birds for sale. As a club 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 the news from the poultry world and particularly Sebright Club news. And if you are thinking of keeping the breed Show Dates & Results will point you in the direction of forthcoming shows - when gatherings are permitted again - where you will be able to pick the brains of breeders and exhibitors alike.
Don't forget to have a look at some country's prize-winning birds, Sebright people and much-loved Sebright pets in Photos. And you can read the past antics of 'Gordon Sebright' in his diary - Gordon & Sylvia's Diary
And why not join in the lively conversation at the Sebright Club of Great Britain Facebook page for up to the minute debate, discussion and photos.
So, if you have just two little Sebrights in the garden as companions - or have bred and shown 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 210 years. It is more important than ever at this time to keep the Sebright breed flourishing and true to the Standard in the uncompromising face of Avian Influenza.
