    Other than the Malaysian Serama, what is the smallest breed recognized by the APA standard?

    Hmmm...maybe dutch? I know Matt NC has some that I thought were wild birds running around the ground! hehe Granted they were babies, but even the adults are wittle bitty.


    According to this site

    TheBigWRanch breed information
    "THE DUTCH BANTAM IS A TRUE BANTAM, AND THE SMALLEST BREED ACCEPTED BY THE APA,"

    Not sure where he got that info from, though.

    Dutch are the second smallest breed. But the smallest recognized breed.
