    Yep, day 18! I have 11 serama eggs in the bator, hopefully, getting ready to hatch. Some people say they take 19 days, some say 21, so I took them off the turner yesterday. I'm REALLY hoping they start hatching tomorrow! How many of you all have hatched serama and what day did they start pipping?

    it should be 21 days same as all chickens, but they could start pipping tomorrow and be out the next day.

    True Seramas start hatching at day 19. I candle mine on day 19 to make sure all is well and the chicks are breaking out well. With their short legs they can have problems, so be prepared. [​IMG]
