    I often see these tiny little chickens at livestock auction but I don't know what the actual breed name is for it. Right now I can't buy any because we don't have a spot for them, but I want to soon. Does anyone know what the actual breed name for miniature chickens are? Not just bantams but they almost look like chicks when they're fully grown.

    Old english game bantams are very small and more common than Seramas.
    Dutch bantams are a bit bigger, I think.

    My Old English Game Bantams are smaller than my Serama is. And Ruthless is right, they're a lot more common than Seramas.

    So English Game Bantam's are also super small like that? I looked up pictures of Serama's and it looks like the kind I've seen. Now I'll go look up English Game Bantams.
