Seramas can be the smallest chicken in the world. But they are a land race and vary in size greatly at this time. My OEGbantams are smaller than some of my Seramas and larger than others. The old english is an established breed and when bred to certain show lines are very tiny. No pics at this time sorry~maybe I can port some later

The old english game bantams I have are inbetween these two sizes

OMG. That has to be the chick that someone gave me at the poultry show this weekend. He didn't know what it was and she was getting trampled so bad. Here is the thread:

She is so tiny compared to my 3 1/2 week old EE's. She's also extremely calm and just wants to sit in my hand. I carried her around a lot today in my shirt pocket (I had on my scrub top from work) and she just slept and didn't make a mess at all.

Hmmmm....maybe not. I just looked at more pictures and my birds chest doesn't stick out the way Seramas are supposed to.
