Serama Sizes?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have started my first hatch which includes seven serama eggs.  In researching this breed of chicken I learned there are different weight classes.   For those who have raised several,  can you determine what size a young one will mature at based on early weights?  Is the 16-18 week weight the mature weight?

Yes there are different weight classes. Can you tell what class at a young age? Generally no. It takes a serama 10-18 months before they have completely filled in, so at minimum I would say 6 months is when you can get a good idea on their class size.
CLASS SIZES
Sizes Cocks,
Micro upto 13 ounces
Class A under 13 ounces
Class B under 16 ounces
Class C under 19 ounces


Hens
Micro upto 8 ounces
Class A under 12 ounces
Class B under 15 ounces
Class C under 19 ounces

Anything weighing more then these is considered a class D bird and are generally considered culls
