    I only one of my Seramas hatched. [​IMG]
    I don't think this little chick is going to be very happy all alone. I certainly can try to brood a single chick; but if someone in Central Ohio has a newly hatched bantam of some sort that they could give or loan or sell to me????
    I think a standard size chick would be TOO BIG to be with a Serama. [​IMG]

    Not as small as a Serama, but I initially was worried that my tiny EE bantam would have it rough with 4 other large fowl chicks. Turns out there was no need to worry.
    They know what they know, I think. The bantam thinks she's as big as the others and also has the quickness and smallness to run circles around the others now (they are 8 weeks) and scooches below them all to push her way up to the food or treats she wants!
    It's comical! She lets no one get the better of her!

    I ordered 3 chicks from Meyer, they will hatch on Monday, and I'm going to pick them. All I could get, to get sexed females, was 2 blue hamburgs and a silver lakenvelder.
    When I bring them home they'll be new to the world and Tiny Serama Chick will be a mature 6 day old. Tiny Serama Chick can show them the ropes, and will be glad for the company.
    My husband didn't even mind the additional chicks as they will provide him with fresh eggs. [​IMG]

    I've kept serama with LF chicks before and they do okay. The seramas have an attitude that the LF can't match at such a young age.
