    The one thing you have to watch is looseing your 'serama look' but its sounds like its worth a try
     
  3. Hi! I have Serama that have the barring gene.
    They are wheaten based and barred.
    I have some youngsters showing barring available if you could use them or eggs when the girls lay again.
    I'm in Aiken, SC --- not too terribly far.
    edited to add :
    This is the Serama roo

    The barring gene is there without going out to 'other breeds'.

    You might try using a barred jap also.

    Dipsy Doodle Doo LOVE that bird!! Wanna trade some eggs?


    I got one just like that as a young chick this spring from someone for the color...traded another chick for him, but not that he's grown I think he is a cross.
    Im not going to breed him, I let him run in the yard with the big chickens. Too pretty to cull tho... [​IMG]

    Those are very pretty seramas, almost looks like crele.
    I think a barred Japanese would be easier too, if you could find a barred Japanese that is.

    Actually, someone already is working on barred seramas. I strongly discourage crossbreeding if the color is already present in the breed. If you PM me, I can give you his contact.
