Sebright bantams are among the most eye-catching birds in the world of poultry in both their varieties. The Silver Sebright is a white bird with black lacing on all its feathers. The Gold has the black lacing on a base color of golden brown. The 26 ounce rooster outweighs the hen by 4 ounces. The birds carry a rose comb and the males must be hen-feathered, as are some Campines.

The Sebright is one of the true bantams. That means there is no standard (large) version of the breed. The breed was developed by Sir John Sebright early in the 1800s and has the distinction of being the only breed of chicken named for an individual.
