    I was at a poultry show today, where I got my stinky (gorgeous) silkie, and I saw a tiny little rooster, literally the size of a robin. it was the smallest chicken I've ever even imagined. I had no idea chickens came that small! It was a grown up rooster, with the comb and tail and everything, just SUPER tiny. are all bantams like that? My silkie is bigger than that tiny bird... any ideas as to what it might have been?

    Was it hen feathered (explanation did it have male sickles).

    What color/pattern?

    you asked about male sickles... the only thing I can think of is Popsicles, or icicles... It was definitely a male, black and brown, with a long black tail, and a brown head and neck... i was just amazed at it's tininess. I asked the lady who tiny chickens did with big chickens, and she wasn't too encouraging... I think my hens would squash him.. but if I ever, EVER get another coop/run, I want TINIES!!!

    Sounds like a serama
    They have various colorations...
    Kind birds, but flighty...
