Wow, your lil chickens are so precious! I want about a million!
I know Seramas are not cold hardy and silkie chickens are, (I know your birds are not Silkies, but the feathering got be wondering) so with your Silkied Seramas what would you recommend for outdoor temps with them?
I feel bad if they even get cold but they can handle it a lot better than I can.
I tent the goathouse and turn on a space heater when it gets below 40 degrees
but I think they'd probably be fine down to 34 degrees without a heater, if protected from wind and frost.
I know that not all Silkied Serama are as plushly feathered as are my adult birds.
Some Silkied and all Frizzled birds need more warmth than a smooth feathered bird
but the way my hens can puff up, they seem like they may be better insulated than a smooth feathered bird.
I just saw that you're in Michigan.
Ha, I'm rooting for an early Spring to hit us in March but that's probably just another month of Winter for you?
Ok, thank you so much for your honest opinion on their cold tolerance. We've had a very mild winter and it's supposed to be 55 tomorrow, yay! But in general, Michigan is cold till March-April
But I'm in love with your adorable chickens, so I'm concocting a way to have them on my farm
I'll be in touch,
Yeah, it's love at first sight for a lot of people when they see a Tribble.
Come Springtime, there have always been more buyers than available birds.
Worf is my smallest roo ever.
He's 4 and 1/2 months old and under 12 ounces.
I've got him in with a batch of 3 month old birds, so he feels like a big guy.
Hello,I would love to order some of your beautiful babies, But I live in Ca. The chances of the eggs making it, are slim
I shipped eggs to Cali.
Then I reshipped them, packaged better.
They made it the 2nd time.
I made a video of my birds last night
Cute!!! Can you do an order of seven shipped to maine after March first? Think they will make it if they are postal pick up only? Or is it too cold?
You know Maine weather better than do I. I don't know if the post office lets packages freeze?
Might be best to wait for a warm spell to show up?
Hopefully a window will show up around mid-March.
Maine weather is horribly unpredictable! It's 55 degrees today, but tomorrow has a low of nine. I'll pm you in a couple weeks and we could always give it a shot!
