A very good book. It's full of very useful information, pictures, and tips. I'd recommend it.
I think this waterer is great. It only holds 2 gallons of water so if you're a younger, older or out of shape it's not too much work to carry from the hose to the coop. It's it's very easy to fill...
I bought a one of these this summer. It is fantastic. It will pluck 2 birds in 10-15 seconds. My son in law and I cleaned 20 birds in less than 90 minutes. At the end of 90 minutes they were...

I just found a picture of Smoky.
Smoky & Springtime were 2 smooth-feathered incubator babies that I stuck underneath Peanut when they hatched.
He raised them for a month just like a hen.
My roos used to have so much brown in them.
I've practically got it bred out now.post #23275 of 253701/23/16 at 10:34amQuote:Originally Posted by nikki1496
Alright this is getting annoying. ive tried EVERYTHING dry hatching/non dry hatching, temp changes(higher and lower) turning them more/less and still NOTHING. Hens wont brood and i have no other small hens that will brood. i have all of two hens and to roos one hen cant lay because of size. All the eggs die at the same age (day or two before hatch) i was given unbreedable birds. this makes me not even want to continue with serama. Breeders try and pawn off their "trash" birds to people who cant afford their $400 champion birds then wonder why there arent many younger people doing this. its because you 'Give' **** birds. what am i expected to do when they get older and closer to dying? just buy new birds? no i wanted to hatch offspring but im to the point of just giving up hatching all together and that really saddens me because i was really looking forward to hatching and having serama babies but no instead i have good show birds,a hen who cant lay,a rooster who has seizures and one 'good' hen who lays every few days. *steps off soapbox* my rant for the day.
Nikki1496, SO SORRY you are having a bad experience with seramas and shipped eggs.
I pretty much know all the breeders on the West coast and would be more than happy to talk to you and see where/who/what the problem might be. Shipped serama eggs are VERY VERY hard to hatch to begin with and then in a 'bator even harder. You cannot "make" a hen go broody sorry to say. There are SO MANY variables with seramas and being broody also.
Are you looking for seramas to show OR just for fun?
Seramas are grouped this way: SQ, culls (pet quality) and BREEDER quality. Some birds have the abilty/genetics to be both SQ and breeder quality. Most breeders do not sell their breeder quality birds because that is where their SQ are coming from. Being SQ does not necessarily mean he/she will be a good breeder quality...generally speaking your bigger hens that are SQ/BQ are the better egg layers.
How close are you to Modesto? There is going to be the NATIONALS APA/ABA AND a TT shoew there on Jan 30th, so it is a great place to meet breeders etc. I also will be there talking shop.
Nikki, II also can PM you if ya like and answer any questions U might have,

Now, do you want this little boy for showing? He is a good example of the breed for that, nice chest, likes to stand up, hard to tell how short his back is, but all in all, not bad at allpost #23279 of 253701/23/16 at 1:33pm
