    I have a Serama hen who weighs in at 9.5 oz and wondering what size that would make her? A, B, C?

    That sounds really really small, but you might have a very small A class, it just depends on the age of the bird.

    You really can't say weight for sure until 12-18 months, IMO....

    Here is the info you need!

    Does she lay?

    No she did not lay yet but she has been sitting on the nest like she is going to lay any time now. She is VERY red in the face and she does squat now. Thanks so much for the info. I kind of hope she puts on a little more weight so I am able to hatch out those eggies. I know when the hen is too small it's harder to hatch the eggs. She is SO very tiny...she is in with two bantam cochin chicks and they are already bigger then her.

    Technically the classes, A, B, C apply only to hens or cocks which, by definition are older than 1 year. There is only 1 pullet and cockerel class.

    How old is she?

    I'm working on getting pics...and I'm not sure how old she is but I know she is under a year. My guess would be about 6-8 months. I'm hoping for a B size actually so the eggs are a bit bigger. Maybe by the time she is a year old she will reach that weight.

    Probably, but in my experience, she is still going to be a larger A or smaller B....
