The Serama breed originated in Malaysia and are the smallest of all the Bantams. They are well suited for hot climates and can become stressed at temperatures below 40 degrees.
Seramas come in all colors and over 2000 color variations have been recorded in Malaysia. 5 Serama eggs are equal to 1 grade AA large egg. Serama eggs hatch in 19 days. Chicks are especially vulnerable to cold temperatures because of their small size.
They were first introduced in the United States in 2001. In 2004 the first Serama only show, known as the Cajun Classic, was held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
