Sebright Bantams

Our broody hen Bramble is sitting on eggs from Sebright Bantams, this is the photograph from the ebay auction that we won the eggs from.

"The Sebright is a breed of chicken named after its developer, Sir John Saunders Sebright. Created in the 19th century through a selective breeding program designed to produce an ornamental breed, the Sebright is a true bantam, meaning it is a miniature bird with no corresponding large fowl to which it is related." from Wikipedia.

we want to add chickens eventually to the farm but we have a new horse on his way right now so we are working on a fence for him. then some sheep and maybe then chickens.
love the look of yours.
