Pros: Small, friendly
Cons: Not great egg layers
I got my first two sebright hens about a month ago, they are about 20 weeks now. I am new to bantams, my backyard flock is regular sized hens. I haven't gotten any eggs from them yet. They tend to stick together and don't get picked on or pick on the other girls (although they are at the bottom of the pecking order right now). They stay close to me when I am out in the yard. They don't let me touch them but will get very close if I stay still. I do live in the city and have a 4ft fence. They have not jumped it at all, unlike my flightly leghorns that I am constantly herding back into the yard. I do keep one wing clipped (but that doesn't stop my leghorns). Overall I like the sebrights. They aren't my favorite but they are a sweet little bird that is very pretty. I tend to stick with birds that are better egg layers but the sebrights were from a friend that needed to get rid of them so I was happy to take them home.
