Serama

The Serama originated in Malaysia and is the smallest of the Bantam chickens. They are bred for ornamental purposes and are a popular breed for chicken enthusiasts. They are known for their highly lifted, full, well-developed breasts and moderately large and upright tail carriage (at a 90-degree angle).

The American Poultry Association categorizes their weights by class for mature adults which range from Class A (up to 300 grams for males and 275 grams for females), Class B (up to 400 grams for males and 375 grams for females), and Class C (up to 500 grams for males and up to 475 grams for females).
