Golden Sebrights were developed in 1801 by Sir John Saunders Sebright. They with the silver sebrights are the only chickens to ever be named after a person. They are hard to hatch and are small birds, even for a bantam. They can be flighty at times but are sweet gentle natured birds. They are very beautiful birds mainly because each feather is a gold color with black lacing(the silver sebrights have white feathers with black lacing). They also have a rose comb which is a special comb(see pictures of the chicken). They lay a small white egg and do not lay much. They are for great pets and showing. They have been accepted into the American Poultry Association Standard of Perfection as well as the American Bantam Association Standard of Perfection.
