    I'm not a serama expert...but to me they look like seramas. I have some chicks and I just sold my extra ones for $10 each (2 weeks old at the time). No idea if they were anywhere near show quality. So I think $40 for two adults is reasonable if you really want them.

    Yes, they look like Seramas, but very poor type, not even close. Wait for better ones. GARSH! I wish Ondra was here to answer your Quality Q's hahahaha I made a funny QQ's! OHHHHH nooooo....... tooooooooo much CAFFEINE....plus, I'm a tired teen who needs to go to bed and get to bed so i can go to School.... but I do know my Seramas. Big time. My friend is the #13 Official Serama Council of North America judge! And to prove my point, my Serama roo got best of breed at the state fair out of quite a few 'Ramas MWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    All pet quality. Don't waste your money on them! I could recommend some quality breeders. I have heard rumors of serama mix breeding on the West side.......
    These ones have long backs, short legs, non vertical wings, etc.

    There really aren't any good breeders selling in WA this year. that I know of. There are many good breeders on http://findaserama.com/ . They would all require shipping or a looooooonnnnngggggg drive. JerrysSeramas is great. BEST birds.

    Those roos look like more pet quality to me....a little too long in the back, not enough roundness to their chest, and the last pretty roo's seems to be too long in the wing.......sometimes you can take an OK bird and breed it to something awesome and get great chicks if the genes are right and you know their breeding history, but I dont suggest paying that for all PQ birds.. Their chicks will more than likely be more culls. I find that you usually get a range of what the parents are. Also, if they are adults, you will want to know their weights if you are going to breed seriously to improve the quality and size of their offspring. The hen looks OK in that tiny pic, not exhibition quality, but looks chesty...some of the short back REALLY showy hens dont lay well, but you want to have good birds to start with.


    Also..l.......
    Im starting to sell this weekend! I have to take pics though, and post the pairs and extras with prices and contact all the people on my waiting lists. I ship also, was just waiting for the weather to cool. Are you looking to show or to breed? Thanks!

    You can search my posts if you want and see pics of my breeders, and a few shots of the started chicks.
    Best of Luck!
