Type is the outline of the bird. It is the general, overall form of the bird and distinguishes the Serama at a glance with it's upright tail, high prominent breast, low wing and head held far back nearly against the tail. The overall effect of tail and neck/head is of a V shape. The back should be very short and nearly completely covered by the hackle and saddles so as to appear nearly non-existent
Calm, manageable but confidant, easily handled, and showing no aggressiveness,
but still possessing an assertive personality. The bird should pose easily and readily. Frightened or shy birds are as unsuitable as are aggressive and mean birds
Very high and upright, at a 90-degree angle from the ground. The tail is carried parallel to the neck and should be relatively large and wide with full feathering. Further, the tail must have no falling to one side or the other (wry tail).
Main Tail feathers
feathers to be long and wide. They should overlap to some extent, the overall effect is as a set of steps, as the feathers go from the tallest front feathers to the shortest ones in back. When viewed from behind, the main tail is open at an angle of 45 degrees, creating an open inverted V shape from behind.
Profuse, wide and medium in length. These feathers are to be somewhat curved + these may protrude slightly beyond the main tail feathers and there should be as many of them as possible.
Profuse, as many as possible. These feathers should well fill in the base of the tail giving a full look to the tail base.
should be profuse, of medium length, saddle feathers flowing onto the secondaries and onto the back edge of the wing, filling in the area between the wing and the tail. the neck hackle should flow onto + partially cover the shoulders
Should be fairly large in proportion to the body. In stance, the wings should hold a vertical position + should just clear the ground, leaving the foot partially showing They should be held tightly folded when the bird is posing
Shoulders and fronts
Set high and the bird, the hackles should flow over and conceal the tops.
Bows - Smooth
Covert feathers - broad, prominent and forming a visible bar across the wing between the shoulders and primaries.
Primaries - Long in length and of medium width, the primaries should be strong with the secondaries partially overlapping them at the top.
Secondaries - Moderately long and broad
Body to be full and well muscled. When viewed from the top the body shape is somewhat elliptical, with more prominence and width in the area of the breast, with the breast held forward + upwards When viewed from a standing side angle, the body shape is somewhat vase like, creating a wide V shape with the head held well back and the back of the comb touching or nearly touching the tail.
The legs are to be of medium length and are to be set wide, allowing for a full and muscular undercarriage of the body. There should be no narrowness or knock-knees, the overall effect being of well-set, very stable legs that are a strong support to the bird. The legs must be long enough to allow the ends of the wings to be above the ground-toes 4 in number the 3 three facing forward to be well set apart, prop toe strong + set straight behind- any colour accepted
Upper leg - medium in length and well muscled -shanks to be medium in length, of good thickness + not to look too delicate. The shank must not be short or appear absent
Head, Comb and Wattles
Head to be small+ carries well back. The comb is to be of small to medium size and is of the single form, with five points preferred, but more points are allowed. The comb is to be of smooth structure without folds or any deformities, and should lift slightly off the head giving a slight lift to the blade of the comb. The wattles are to be of complementary size to the comb, with smaller wattles being preferred. They must be free of wrinkles and folds
Earlobes - small, oval close fitting to the head- either red or white accepted
All feathers must be well structured and of fine form in clean condition and showing a glossy shine. The body feathers are to be full, profuse, not fluffy, but not tightly feathered either. A medium feather structure is preferred.
should be one of health and vitality, with clean + glossy plumage
any colour or combination of colours are acceptable-this being an accepted trait of the breed- no points are to be awarded
