    I have Sebrights, they are TINY little things. The OEGB's the show I was at are tiny too, about the same size. But my BTW Japanese bantams were huge compared to them! Still smaller then standards but they were giants compared to Sebrights and OEBB's. So my question, are different types of bantams different sizes? What are some other breeds that are as small as Sebrights?

    A couple others that are as small body wise but leg wise their taller - Modern games funny little bird! Also A class seramas are smaller.

    Yes, bantams vary in size. Like the above person said, the smallest varieties tend to be OEGBs, dutch bantams, seramas, moderns (though they're tall), and sebrights. At least in my experience, most other types of bantams are a little bit bigger than those breeds.

    moderns look so cool, I want to try some. Do they get along well with other chickens?

    Not sure but they are very sweet. Atleast the ones at shows have been.
