American serama thread! - Page 1651

post #16501 of 20516

Can't believe it's almost been a week since the first Serama hatched! Looks like he's not going to be a frizzle, but that's okay.

 

Here's Raine:

I had to help Raine hatch. She got stuck during zipping.

 

And now, for Stormy... He is quite the character. He hatched out of the frizzle egg from the pen with a frizzle hen.

And of course, both of them:

 

 

They are feathering out real cool - looks like Stormy is going to be a light blue, and Raine is feathering out with dark brown wings and light brown. Love these babies!

It costs just as much to raise Heritage, true breed fowl... So why not?

Well Taco has been inside since last night. My husband wasn't too pleased by the 5am wake-up crowing, but after the first crow I grabbed him and pulled him under the covers with me and he went back to sleep haha. Looks like he's just going to be my little house chicken buddy until the other Serama are big enough to live with him. He's gotten MUCH better about wearing his diaper too! He can run all over my room and jump a few feet in the air to get where he wants to go with it on.

I tried to take some! but my phone was dying. Here's what I got though!!! Not used to having him diapered all day so I ran out of clean ones for him, he's wearing one of Belles so the neck strap is a little short - jerry rigged with a piece of yarn, works! But I'll be converting all of hers into Taco sized ones tomorrow.

This is where he sleeps. He picked my textbooks as a perch. RIGHT next to my head too, good thing he's a sound sleeper!

 

 

Oh no!!! Man what a crappy start to the week, I'm really sorry about Cleo!

I saw an egg poop once in a brooder full of chicks. Mine was a cecal poop. Colorful things, those 

Take six red sex link hens, five white rock hens, one studly white rock roo, and four seramas. Add to the mix two Great Pyrenees, three cats, one turtle, four fish, three rabbits, a husband and a grade schooler. Shake well with ice and serve cold.

I make and sell my own serama diapers if you are interested =) I just recently perfected my pattern. You don't see much of the fabric on the top, their feathers lay over it quite nicely, but you can definitely see the fabric patterns on their chest, I think it's just adorable! His diaper is mismatched at the moment because the bottom is Belle's and I didn't make a matching one for him, the back pieces are all interchangeable, and they don't really get dirty so they don't really need more than a couple. I just dump the poop in the toilet and snap it back on. Only takes a couple second. If he's had a cecal poop or anything runny then I wipe it out and toss the bottom piece in the wash, the top piece snaps right into a clean bottom!

 

Thanks, we love him! He is doing much better now, running around enjoying himself, even hanging out with the dog. I'm so glad he's back to his old spunky self.

Here you can see the pleats on his chest and at the back by the poop cup - I've found that this allows the diaper to curl and sit closer to their body with such pronounced chests and sternums. This almost completely eliminates their feet getting caught in the underbelly body and gives them better range of motion than a flat diaper

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's one of belles heavily used diapers. I need to trim some of the threads again, but after a few months of machine washing I'm surprised it's still all in one piece!

 

It has a meta leash loop, and waterproof baby diaper fabric lining the poop cup so if there is any wetness it doesn't leak. This also really helps it stay stiff and open.
