Serama Chicks **2022 Per-Order**
The babies when hatched are very fragile and need some extra care, I don’t sell any babies under 2 weeks of age. Because of their fragile nature, I will no longer be shipping chicks under 6 wks of age, they are available for farm pickup at 3 weeks of age. We will have 6 wks old and hatching eggs available for shipping.
Seramas are one of the worlds’ smallest recognized breeds..the smallest chicken in the world! A full grown rooster is about the size of a pigeon. Seramas have a very tame and gentle disposition, making them great pets since they are easily handled. Once you see these cute little beauties you wont be able to resist. Seramas are one of our specialty breeds here at the farm – this means they need some specialized, or custom care beyond what a “typical” chicken would have.
Since the birds are tropical in nature in the winter they might need supplemental heat – if 40 degrees or below. Here in Vermont we get temps below that and provide them with heat. Some keep them indoors in the winter or year round if they have cold winters. They are docile, friendly and like human interaction. They can be trained and love to show off both the hens and the roosters. Predator proof housing and runs are a must because of their size. The roosters make wonderful companions are full of personality and make great pets or can integrate with other flock members. The hens tend to go broody and love to be spoiled. We find too many roosters and not enough hens may cause dominance conflicts so make sure to have enough hens to rooster ratios. They can also be kept in the home as pets.
Seramas do not breed true to any one particular color. Seramas come in over 2000+ varieties of colors. Part of the fun is not knowing what you will hatch, they are considered a landrace breed. Babies can be different sizes when hatched. We have the frizzle, silked and smooth feathered varieties and many color patterns. Their eggs are white to a variety of shades in between and light tan.
