The World's Smallest Chicken!
Feather Lover Farms is proud to be the first baby chick hatchery that we know of to offer day-old Malaysian Serama chicks for sale that ship safely to your local Post Office!
Our adult breeding stock consist of hand selected Malaysian Seramas from show winning blood lines and they come in the highly sought after 3 small sizes. Micro, Type A and Type B size breeding chart. Though our adult stock was mostly hand selected for show quality stock, we can not guarantee the chicks you receive will turn out to be show quality like many of their parents.
Seramas are by far one of the most gorgeous chickens on the planet and their chicks are "TINY" and so adorable. They are the smallest recognized chicken breed on the planet. We have been acquiring unrelated adult Serama chickens from only premier exhibition show quality stock, with many of our adult Serama breeders being actual direct offspring from show winning Seramas. All of our breeders are mostly unrelated and being from quality show lines, you may end up with some blue ribbon winners from your Serama chicks from us!
Serama chickens come in a wide variety of colors and their colors do not always breed true. Meaning if both parents are the same color you may still get offspring to hatch out a totally different color! Our flock comes in all sorts of beautiful colors and almost all of our Serama breeders are considered the smooth feather type, however, it is still possible that a few of our Serama chicks for sale can hatch out silkied or frizzled feather types as we do have a very small percentage of adult breeders that are frizzled Seramas. They are also known for their upright chest out posture, vertical wings pointing straight down usually touching the floor, short little legs and tall vertical tails giving them a look like no other chicken.
In exhibition poultry shows, our Serama adult breeders are considered the Micro, A and B type weight classes which are very small and preferred by most Serama breeders. Serama weight classes are used for exhibition poultry shows and we made an easy chart below of the size comparison for you to be able to see what your Serama chicks from us grow up to be! Type A and Micro are the smallest ones and are harder to breed and successfully hatch. If you want to hatch your own chicks, type B and C are larger and are easier breed and hatch eggs from. It is also interesting that Seramas do not breed true in size. Even 2 larger Parents of the C class type can produce offspring that only grow to the Mico or A class type. The same goes for the small parents. Sometimes smaller A and micro Serama parents can still produce offspring that grow up larger to the type B and C size chart.
Table Top Competitions are very common at Serama poultry shows. This is when a Serama chicken is place on a table and displays to the judges and crowd their upright cocky posture with their head high, chest out, wings straight down touching the floor and tail straight up. This is one of the most exciting parts of the Serama shows and is where Feather Lover Farms chose some of our breeders due to being so impressed with the Serama Table Top Competitions.
Believe it or not, though it may take you a dozen Serama eggs to make small omelette, they are fantastic layers of tiny cream colored eggs all year long. They start laying as soon as 4-5 months old and LOVE to be broody and hatch and raise their own chicks for you. It should also be noted that Serama roosters rarely seem to fight. Many times you can keep a bunch of males in the same pen without any issues and they also do not hardly crow.
Serama chicks tend to hatch 1 or 2 days sooner than a normal chicken. Feather Lover Farms incubates their Serama eggs 1 day sooner than our other larger chicken breeds so they all hatch on the same day ready to be shipped out to their new loving homes every week. We successfully ship your Serama chicks across the country with warm 72 hour heat packs, plenty of chick nesting material under and around the chicks and extra filler chicks if need be to ensure a warm and safe arrival.
Lastly, Serama chickens do not require much space at all. Same small coop requirements to small bantam chickens or bantams. Many Serama breeders use a mini chicken coop or rabbit hutch like the ones we sell which works perfect for them. They do not create hardly any mess in their little coop and hardly eat any chicken feed at all. They are extremely tame and friendly and will likely be your new favorite backyard chickens in your flock!
**Note: We recommend you use very small shallow waterers when you receive your Serama chicks from us.

Shipping: You will receive an automatic email and text message when your chicks ship along with tracking info. Chicks usually arrive in the morning 1-2 days later and your local Post Office will call you for pickup. Chicks are never delivered to your home address, even if you used a home address for your shipping address.
What I Need: Everything you need can usually be purchased at your local feed store. Chick starter feed, waterer, brooder (cardboard box, plastic storage bin, bathtub, or even a kiddie pool are popular), pine shavings, thermometer and a heat lamp or heat source. Baby chicks require heat of about 95 degrees their first week of life. Second week you can lower the temperature to 90 degrees and so on with every week going down 5 degrees until 6-8 weeks old or when they are ready to go "outside".
How Do My Chicks Survive Shipment?: Baby chicks do not need food or water for the first 72 hours of life. Ingesting their yolk sac gives them the nutrition they need to survive the journey from Feather Lover Farm's hatching facility to you! Shipping day-old chicks helps ensure a safe arrival since they will usually be just 2 days old when you receive them. Our packaging is professional with a brand new chick shipping box, nesting material and warm long lasting heat packs depending on the time of the year. Your chicks will look like they just hatched out of a nest when you open the box and jump into your arms, thinking you are their mother hen!
