Silver Sebright bantam chickens

We now have a flock of about 24 bantams, maybe 7 of which are these Silver Sebrights. We have one Golden Sebright. I fell in love with these beautiful birds a few years ago when I saw a 10-year-old girl’s flock at the Mendocino County Fair. They lay very small eggs, are a bit skittish, but oh those white feathers outlined in black! We get all our chickens from Murray McMurray Hatchery; they come via the U.S. post office overnight.

Here’s a good blog with a lot of practical hands-on tips for raising chickens in urban or suburban areas:

  1. Yay,its good to see others keeping bantam breeds.I am amazed with all the new chicken keepers out there these days keeping big standard breeds especially in the urban settings.
    I came across your blog about a month ago and am really loving the variety of your posts.Thank-you so much.

  2. Hey this is JesseG I’m looking for some silver duck wing bantams I live here in Shamrock TX anyone near by please help.

  3. Hi, I’m an animal behaviorist on the Gulf Coast who is looking for 4-6 9 months or older Sebright hens for an Operant Conditioning research project I am working on. I can assure you they will get a wonderful forever home. I am having a really hard time finding adult hens. Raising chicks to adulthood will significantly slow my research down. Any help anyone can give me in locating Sebrights would be greatly appreciated.

  4. I know this post is a decade old but I’m looking for a silver Sebright hen or puller. Strictly for a pet. I had several when my children were young and just love them. I’m 71 now and I think I really need one! Lol
