About Malaysian Serama Bantam ChickensAbout Malaysian Serama Bantam Chickens

Malaysian Serama Bantams are the smallest breed of chicken in the world, weighing less than 500g. They are only 15-25 cm tall (a standard can of soda is 11.5 cm tall) and are the result of crossing Japanese bantams with Malaysian bantams.

They originated in Malaysia and the birds we see today were developed from crosses of Ayam Kapans and Japanese Bantams in the 1970's and 80's by Wee Yean Een. They are supposedly named after the Thai king, Raja Sri Rama, who, like these little birds, was renowned for his majestic appearance and proud carriage.

There are 3 categories for this breed and they are graded according to their weight with the smallest and most desirable weighing just 350g. They are very upright little birds with a small neat comb. Their breast is high and pushed upwards with the wings almost touching the ground, giving the impression that they are standing to attention and the tail is held at 90° so that it almost touches the back of the head.
