    Our Bantams
    Seramas
    This breed was developed in the Malaysian state of Kelantan, apparently from crossing Japanese bantams and some local Malaysian bantams. The birds are tiny and must weigh less than 450 grams, under 350g being preferable. The breed was named after the Thai king Rama, because of its proud carriage: it carries itself erect, with an upright tail and protruding breast. Over the past 20 years, a Mr. Wee of Kelantan, Malaysia, has done much work to standardize the breed. Seramas can appear in almost any color. They are not color bred in Malaysia, so there is no standard for this.

    Kentucky Specks
    Kentucky Specks are a very rare breed developed over 200 years ago in Kentucky. I know very little about this breed, but will do my best to find out more.

    d'Anvers AKA Antwerp Belgian Bantams
    One of the true bantams, meaning there is no standard bird of the same type, these little bearded birds have been bred for exhibition for many years in Britain and on the Continent. They are found in many colors, including Black, Mottled, Porcelain, Self Blue and Quail. They are delightfully pretty little birds although in my experience the males are often aggressive to people. On the other hand, the hens are very friendly and make wonderful pets.​
