I didn’t realize how very small these bantams are and one got out while I was getting their water. And then another when I tried to get the first one back in. So my plan of keeping the bantams from the flock separated lasted all of 16 hours 😅
But they seem to be fine and have eaten together. One hen in particular is very watchful of them, but not pecking. All seems well today 😌
“The Sebright, developed by Sir John Sebright, 7th Baronet, in about 1800, is one of the oldest British bantams. It is considered to be a true bantam in that there is no standard version of the breed. Sebright wanted to develop a bantam that was small with laced plumage. It is thought that he crossed the Nankin, among other native bantams and Polish breeds to create the coloring and feathering he was looking for.
The Sebright was admitted to the APA in 1874... They have a striking lace pattern on their bodies...The Sebright has a short back, prominent breast; full tail that is carried at about 70 degrees above horizontal. The wings are large and downward sloping.” - @livestockconservancy
