Sebright

Sebright chickens are by far the most eye catching chicken we've ever had at the farm, particularly the Silver Laced Sebright (pictured below). If you are interested in a bantam, this is KIS Farm's #1 recommendation. They are intelligent, friendly, and really cute. When young these smartly dressed ladies lay almost every day.  After a few months, however laying tapers off to 2 eggs or so a week.

KIS Tip: Bantam eggs are PERFECT for hikes and picnics. Just boil 3 minutes, and you have a teeny treat packed with excellent nutrition, cooked to perfection. If you want to benefit from the nutrition of raw eggs, these small eggs are just right for adding to a beverage or a soup, without being drowned in slime.

Fun Fact: The Sebright breed has an amazing history. They are one of the few true bantam breeds, meaning they started small and aren't just a miniaturized version of another breed. In, fact, the Wyandotte chicken was bred up from the Sebright, instead of the other way around. This breed was developed in the 1800s by Sir John Saunders Sebright, whose work with animal breeding was known to be an influence on Charles Darwin.
