I second so much of this post! CJ your birds are so pretty! I wish I could see them in person!! maybe some day I'll actually play seriously and have a chance to hatch some from your drool worthy birds.
meltel it too only had 2 serama hatch from a ton of shipped eggs this fall. I did not expect it have so many issues rebuilding my flock!!!! No more shipped serama eggs for me for awhile!
they are already hard to hatch as it is-50% is great in my eyes on shipped serama eggs. 6 dozen are MIA with the post office-but what can i do... If i get one great bird that hatches I am happy! I am sorry you are having troubles rebuilding your flock. I am probably not going to do shipped serama eggs or chicks-mainly because of the problems @cjwaldon has encountered. I want to grow my birds out and know what i am selling. i am glad she has entrusted her birds to me & the people that will appreciate, care and breed them appropriately. There is no guarantee what hatches. you can pair 2 perfect birds and still get duds.but people will still try and breed and sell them as "champions". Please keep in touch if you are looking to rebuild your flock in the future. I am going to look into how to safely ship birds and will try to offer deals to those who are looking to improve the breed once I have an established, proven flock.
