Serama Chicken Breed: The Most Pompous Chickens Ever

{9 Comments}

Serama chickens are the smallest in the world, but you really couldn’t tell by their attitude. Seeing them pose with their head pulled back and chest sticking out, you’d think they were some kind of feathered bodybuilders.

Serama chickens are the most pompous chickens ever.

This chicken breed can be traced back all the way to the 1600s, to the Kelantan province of Malaysia, but the current strain can be attributed to Wee Yean Een, a breeder who popularized it during the 1970s and even gave the chicken the Serama name, after King Rama of Thailand.

Serama chickens are the most pompous chickens ever.

Nowadays the Serama chicken breed is flourishing, especially in Asian countries like Vietnam, where chicken enthusiasts breed them for posing competitions, where the chickens try to look as pompous as possible. It actually comes natural to them, as they are known as the athletes of the chicken world, because of their extremely proud pose.

Serama chickens are the most pompous chickens ever.

Serama chickens have a muscular body, but their toned physique is visually amplified by their athletic pose. They instinctively cock their head back and push their large chest out, while lifting their the legs and shaking their wings. It’s like they are trying to make up for their small size with their posing. These tiny athletes may try their best to look threatening, but they are not aggressive at all, and make great pets. They are easy to handle and cheap to raise, as they consume only about one pound of regular chicken feed each month.

      Like Republicans. They are called conservatives because they conserve their genetic defects. Marrying inside your family helps.

      I like Canadians better than US Americans. Better manners. More honest. Less primitive.

      They don’t spy at their allies at least.

      Many small meaningless countries feel the need to lash out at their betters. It’s normal. Don’t worry. We still love ya. When we think about you at all. Which is far less often then you think. Far less often.
