    Yeah... Nobody except the other hens! How do they get along with DP hens like BSL? I really don't want to have another coop.
    If it helps, my hens get along with my 1lb OEGB girls so they are very tolerant of others....

    I just can't believe how CUTE seramas are! [​IMG]

    Mine get alone just fine, They are about the size of OEGB, But a little smaller, If they get along with them they should be fine with seramas!

    Mine can hold there own. They may be small but they are sassy. My hens that are bigger than them move out of the way, my seramas have had no problem with them. If they get along with the OEGB they should be fine with a Serama. Maybe introduce the OEGB to the Serama first and then to the rest...

    New chicken owner here, do broody chicks hold grudges at you for taking their eggs?

    Hens really dislike their egg being taken away but, the most damage they'll do is from a few pecks during removal.

    Normal Chicken Life span!


    I Remembered something the article Didn't mention, because the seramas are the smallest breed, They have different size "classes".

    Sizes – Cocks,
    Micro – upto 13 ounces
    Class A – under 13 ounces
    Class B – under 16 ounces
    Class C – under 19 ounces

    Hens
    Micro – upto 8 ounces
    Class A – under 12 ounces
    Class B – under 15 ounces
    Class C – under 17 ounces

    So If anyone Has seramas, Be sure to weigh them!
