    I've read where the Serama only get like 6 oz. That's smaller then a quail. Interesting facts for sure.

    Well, i was at a fair and there was a chicken that i thought was a OEG bantam and it was porcelain. I loved it so much.....but it was very tiny!!!! It was dark and i know the color, but i wonder if it was a dutch and not a OEG. It was a girl too. I think that pic is a big boy.
