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 us.
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 Spring Newsletter is soon to be produced and in our last Newsletter there were Judges' reports from recent shows; club news; details of the 2012 bicentenary celebrations and the opportunity to obtain a specially commissioned Sebright cockerel pin badge. We held two special Club Shows last year at The National, Stoneleigh and The Federation, Stafford with additional novice classes, balloons, cake and of course, some excellent Sebrights!
On the website we have a monthly competition (under the 'Fun' section). Gordon Sebright (you can read his Diary in the 'Fiction' part) is on Facebook and Twitter with over 1700 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 tame and 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!
