Serama rooster with mixed flock of hens.. "Can and should I"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a new flock (5) of mixed hens about 1 month old. I'm interested in putting a Serama rooster in with the flock. I cant have a rooster where I live, but the seramas' crow seems to be very quiet. I love to see the male roo's colors and attitude but I with my neighborhood and young young children a full sized boy is just not an option. 

 

 

My question is, canI put a Serama rooster with normal sized girls, and is it advisable. 

 

I can wait til they are fully grown or maybe let them grow up together. 

 

Please share your experiences and thoughts on this matter. 

 

Regards,

I have kept other bantam breeds with large breed hens. They hold their own. I would probably house him next to them so he gets used to them and them him. I probably wouldn't add him until they are older and are ready for a rooster at around 4-5 months, but might try letting him mingle with supervision sooner to see how he acts.

So,i should wait untill they get bigger then get a grown Serama roo.

What about getting a baby Serama roo to put together with the baby hens?

I thought you had one, sorry, if you can get a young one close to their age that is best, otherwise add an adult when your hens start laying. So either way will work.
