Two weeks old $8
Three weeks old $10
That gives me some hope. My Teeny was 13 weeks yesterday and is at 10.4 ounces. As to size, I gave up on Midget. She stayed soooo small for so long and then, almost overnight, she passed 12 ounces and is now bigger than her mother. She is over 20 weeks.
You have not posted again. It is my hope that I did not offend by saying I thought your hen was ill or that they were eight weeks old instead of 8 months old. If so, I am sorry. If I had not posted about the above pullet being sick and then read later that she had died, well, it would be hard to take.
Serama are wonderful birds and the ones you have will make great additions to your family.
Pictures can be very deceiving. I've seen this in my own pictures. But here is why I believe she might be ill. First her eyes. They do not look as they should for a healthy bird. And yet, I have seen this caused by editing a picture. Her beak is slightly open as though the breathing were labored. But she could be vocalizing at the time the picture was taken. In the picture her plumage looks frayed and stained from head on down. A bird that is ill doesn't care for themselves as they should. Again, much of her appearance in the photo could very well be caused by the lighting when the shot was taken.
I do hope that I am wrong and that the pullet is fine.
Hello! I have just read your nice posting, and I am sorry that I have missed it until now! No, I was not offended; but I was (and am) concerned. Both of these birds have "funny" eyes. I did not know if it was the breed, or... They sure seem lively and full of mischief, but she spends a lot of time hiding beneath his skirts. Sometimes it appears that she is having a hard time balancing, but not always. Will you tell me what made you think that they might be so young? And, also, any advice on diagnosing or treating her/them would be welcomed!
Oh! BTW - He first began to crow this week.

Nice! Thats great. Sorry you had to sell as chicks, but thats what happens sometimes
I Think that you are going to have a hard time finding someone to give you eggs, You can find people who will sell you eggs, but I think in your situation, I would get proven Adult birds. that way you will get fertile birds
