    I'm auctioning sweet little Magellan. I won him in an auction on BYC last fall from Juliette, aka Pixiechick.

    He has blessed me with a whole bunch of great looking frizzle, chocolate, white, silkied, and other patterned babies. He has lots of genes hiding in him!

    Just to be honest, he got in a tiff with a cockerel in a neighboring cage this week, and got a bit of comb damage. Nothing severe. It just muddied up his handsome appearance. I'm guessing he's about a year old, and could stand a good molt, after a winter inside, but he's still healthy, and active and alert. He's good to his girls, and tame enough to be handled, though I haven't snuggled him as much as he would probably like.

    I will try to get some pics of his children. Here is one of his sons also being auctioned.

    Shipping is an estimate, and will be billed at actual cost. Shipping can be combined with any of my other current auctions, or with those of 'wishiwasjane.' We breed Seramas together, and leave near each other.

    Happy bidding!

    Quote:I'm pretty sure I currently have them ALL. Hence the auction... I have a few of Magellan's kids that are growing up nicely if you need one in the future!

    Sorry for the delay folks. It's been a busy busy week and weekend!

    I just weighed Magellan, and he's 458 grams, or class B.

    I do not have any pullets to add to the auction, but I will be putting some up for auction next week. I can hold him for an extra week if you would like to bid on a pullet to combine shipping.

    Thanks!

    Quote:Is there an official list of Serama class weights? If I go by what's listed at Jerry's*, he would actually be a small C. (458 gm = 16.2 oz)

    COCKS HENS
    Micro - under 9 ounces Micro - under 8 ounces
    A - 9.1 to 13 ounces A - 8.1 to 12 ounces
    B - 13.1 to 16 ounces B - 12.1 to 15 ounces
    C - 16.1 to 19 ounces C - 15.1 to 17 ounces
    D - over 19.1 ounces D - over 17.1 ounces

    Your conversion is correct. I got that info from this website, which also says it gets the info from Jerry...

    This site says cocks below 500 grams are "B" class. So I don't know what his correct. It's safe to say he's a large B or small C. My scale weighs in grams, and 458 grams is what it says. Interpret as you will.
