No I didn't incubate myself. It was just the one. Was a fluke that I ended up with it. Was one that got snuck in to bantam batch at feed store .Wasn't sure if the lil one was a Japanese Bantam or Serama it was so tiny compared to the rest. I was hoping it would be OK but knew yesterday it wasn't doing well. Slept alot and just didn't have much energy. I had only had it about 2 weeks but was loved a bunch the little time we had the lil one. Named it Marshmallow cuz was about roasting marshmallow size when got it.

Arww what a sweet name. Its a shame when you get a bond with them and then have to let go. I incubated some chicks and only 2 lived. But last April when i moved house they were around 10 or 11 weeks old I had to sell them as I was so busy with the move and getting the children settled in. I didn't have the time to hold them so they had to go . But now we're all settled I decided to get some seramas and hopefull ill become the crazy chicken lady again lol . But i will treasure the time I had with the chicks . Gone but never forgotten x

I have 5 serama roosters, and I find that each has a different volume, it seems to be totally random and individual. Some are loud as full sized roos, and 2 of them are quiet enough to live indoors. If there's any way to get an adult roo and pick by crow volume, that might work best.

They were hatched in an incubator and live in my kitchen next to where I spend a lot of time. I do touch and stroke them (more like chase them around the cage with my hand and corner them) a few times a day. They are talked to. Yet, it is very slow coming they can abide me. Any sudden noise, including an outburst from me, sends them in a panic.These are well bred chicks. I am most disappointed in what I thought would be an almost naturally friendly breed. 

My chicks are skittish at first but calm down as they age.
