Serama Contest : Find The Smallest, The most Arrogant, and he Most Beautiful Feather

In Indonesia, the hobbyist often organize Serama contest to find Serama championship. This contest has aim to introduce this Malayan bantam to the society.
Serama judges base on three category i.e. the body weight, feathers, and the wide of breast.
The Serama should have beautiful and shining feathers. I think this is the subjective judge because we have different opinion about beautiful feather. Some judge thinks that the white is the most beautiful feather but some judge think that the white is bad feather.
The judge gives high mark for Serama that has small size. The weight of Serama contest is not more than 22.5 oz. This judge is objective than other criteria.

Last criteria is the wide of the breast. The chicken should puff out the chest like arrogant. That is why Indonesian people call it arrogant chicken. 
A serama price is only $200 but when its get the championship the price is $ 6,000. To be honest I will not buy the expensive chicken. I could get this chicken for $25 from the farmer.
