By 1874 the breed was divided into separate breeds, the Golden Laced and Silver Laced Sebrights and the following year the names were changed to Golden and Silver Sebrights. By 1899 The Sebright became one breed with two varieties, Golden and Silver with the shape and color defined separately. Through the early 1900s the breed was continually developed with refinements to the shape, size and colour, until by 1952 the breed became established into the standard that is recognized today.
These little cuties were hatched on August 28 & 29, 2008. I am really enjoying watching these adorable chicks grown and change. They are such elegant birds... I just love them!

Meet Edward, the magnificent. He is 4 days old here.
For some reason I didn't get any photos of Edward from 4 weeks old until he was 8 weeks old, and then I ended up with quite a few photos of him! So here are several pics of Edward at 8 weeks.
Here he is at 11 weeks. (ignore all the droppings on the window sill!)
He certainly is a beautiful bird!
Meet Beatrice. She is the shy one between the two pullets.
I can't wait until Beatrice is full grown! She is only11 weeks old and already gorgeous!
Can I pose for you, Mommy?
What about a side view?
This is Tigerlily. She was the first one, out of my batch of 15 Assorted Bantams that I named. She stood out from everyone else right from the very first day!
13 weeks. "Hey! Can you put that camera down now?!"
There you have it, my three Golden Sebright Bantams. I will update this page as they get older and I have more photos to share!
Thanks for stopping!
