    Two that come to mind would be OEGB (Old English Game Bantam) and Seremas. Are you looking strictly for a breed based on size or are there other characteristics you would also like in the bird?

    Kind of depends on the Silkie [​IMG]

    Most of your bantam breeds are going to be about the same size or a bit smaller.

    My bantam Cochins are all smaller than my Silkies, for instance.
