The Serama Bantam is the smallest chicken breed in the world and not as yet standardised in the UK.
Despite this it is a growing popular breed. This is due to its size. It is barely taller than a can of drink and needs far less space. It is a tame breed developed using the Japanese Bantam and many have guessed at some point the Silkie was also used.
The Serama should have a short back, chest carried forward and tail almost touching the head, tail feathers should not be crooked or tip to one side. A
big factor with Seramas is size. In Malaysia, their place of origination, they are exhibited in Classes, these are A, B C and so on. It is therefore recommended that if you want to have a breeding group is to have a larger size (C+) this will give you a POL that has a bigger area to nest her eggs. Smaller
class birds are unable to sit on eggs or hatch eggs successfully.
