Originated in England in 1810 after 30 years of development by Sir John Sebright. This poultry breed is noted for lack of sickle feathers on the males (both rooster and hen have hen feathers). Also noted for the first specialty club organized (Sebright Bantam Club) in 1815. Admitted into the American Poultry Standard of Perfection in 1874.
