Serama chickens are a bantam breed native to East Asia that are kept as pets and entered into beauty contests, with big cash prizes awarded to the winners.

The tiny birds are the smallest breed of chicken in the world and stand just six to ten inches tall.

The cockerels are known for standing bolt upright with their chests puffed out and tail feathers raised.
