Very nice. How do you train a serama to stand up tall / pose? Is there a video link to show the process? About how long does it take?
Thank you! Posing is natural for the breed especially ayams. But they still need to be trained.
These videos are helpful.

Are you interested in tabletop? :)

Also not my videos just some I found!

Thank you. Not sure if I'll ever show, but I like watching them stand tall & show off. I really enjoy taking pretty chicken photos, so it would be nice to have pose for me.
(My big fat orps are pretty.... but they prefer to always bend down & eat. Not the best pose!)
example: See the pretty beetle green sheen.... and the horrible pose?

2 pullets and a cockerel!
They come from very nice show champions.
The little pullet who is very black is named Moonie, the pullet with more white is named Tuffy, and the cockerel needs a name
Sorry for all the pictures can’t seem to get rid of them
They are a few months old. Already training!!!
Really beautiful; I especially like the pullet with the most white-so sleek and curious-and that tail. Truly gorgeous.

Here’s my trio I bought them from a friend I don’t know very much about Seramas! So far they’ve been nice to have i’m hoping to incubate some eggs soon.
A beautiful trio. I've had numerous breeds of chickens. You'll find they are very different if they're like mine; friendly, gentle, sweet, and smart (for a chicken). They have great pet potential and make a terrific hobby.

advice?, new to the breed
Have everything ready to go! Be prepared to spend every hour checking on them. Take LOTS of pictures and post them here.

Seriously, I find seramas pretty easy to care for. They are really no different than any other chicken. They are a little more delicate as chicks than bigger chickens, but quite tough once they get past the itty bitty stage. If you are in a cold climate, they will need supplemental heat. Mine live in a coop in the garage and go outside when the temp is above 30.
