Seramas are one of the worlds’ smallest recognized breeds..the smallest chicken in the world! A full grown rooster is about the size of a pigeon. Seramas have a very tame and gentle disposition, making them great pets since they are easily handled. Once you see these cute little beauties you wont be able to resist.
Seramas originated in Malaysia, where they are the number one house pet, outnumbering dogs and cats. The rooster crow is adorable!
The complete ancestry of the Serama is uncertain and there are many claims and myths regarding it’s origin. Some theories date as far back to the 1600s and to the Thai King Sri Rama, although there is no documented evidence to prove this.The creator of the modern Serama bantam is Wee Yean Een. In 1971 he began a breeding program that would see Ayam Kapans crossed with Japanese bantams and Silkies.
Since the birds are tropical in nature in the winter they might need supplemental heat – if 40 degrees or below. Here in Vermont we typically do. Some keep them indoors in the winter or year round if they have cold winters. They are docile, friendly and like human interaction. Predator proof housing is a must because of their size. We let them free range with all of our other large birds and they do very well, plus the larger birds tend to leave them alone due to their size. Our kids love holding them and cuddling – small but with big personalities. We find too many roosters and not enough hens may cause dominance conflicts so make sure to have enough hens to rooster ratios. They can also be kept in the home as pets.
Seramas do not breed true to any one particular color. Seramas come in over 2000+ varieties of colors. Part of the fun is not knowing what you will hatch. Babies can be different sizes when hatched. We have the frizzle, silked and smooth feathered varieties and many color patterns. Their eggs are white to a variety of shades in between and light tan. Our birds are Non-GMO and vaccinated for Marek’s Disease. We have obtained for 2021 new stock that is exceptional and we have some unique color patterns. Our breeders are bred to APA Standards.
Give this cute little breed a try you wont be disappointed!
