No matter where you get your birds, please do all your research on type, and what to look for.

Read read read read read and then talk to breeders to see if you get it!
No matter what Jerry sells----
-- he probably keeps his best to breed and show (of course, everyone does!)
----- sells the next best for big bucks and has to make sure those birds are quality, or he will lose customers
----gives away older breeders (probably good), or birds that are pet quality (culls) or not typey/way too large
He gives away Cull D class pairs for the cost of shipping, and I dont think thats right. D class birds do not produce many smaller birds, and are usually not as typey. The people that get those, breed them and we lose some of the size and type as those birds circulate their offspring.
You can find tons of breeders with excellent birds on the yahoo group Seramas...
South Carolina has a bunch of dedicated breeders, and you could get great A and B class birds for a fraction of the cost Jerry sells his good ones for.
I'd love to help you out, but I will only have them in the fall..I have 40 something chicks at various ages...and try not to sell them until they are older and I can cull and match up pairs...pick out the best for myself for nest year, lol
*** For those of you that have received his birds, I would really be interested to learn more about it. From the ones that I have seen friend's get, they were either a couple of years old, not the best type or size.... I still dont know anyone (other than some of the big Serama breeders) that have actually bought an A or B class pair of his birds....
Please let me know your experiences! Thanks!! *********
