    Hello all! Its time for the big Serama sale where we pick out pairs and offer them to you once a year! You can pick your own pair by going to:
    http://photobucket.com/BluegrassSeramas

    There
    you will find pictures of the birds that are available--Marked by their color and number of band. (Ex. Blue 22, Red 87, Pink 90 etc..)
    You will need a pen and paper to write down the ones that you like, as there are multiple pictures of some.

    There are some pictures at the end that are of birds that were not banded yet. (Some are marked with a "TW" for twin--these all are very similar, and most have blue bands) Please dont pick one of these, I dont know who they are from those pics!
    It took a long time to take pictures of 40 young birds and sometimes we just took the pic to show the color and you really cant see the type on that bird, so we tried to add any pics that would show what we are producing.

    The birds are young, 4-6 months old, and kept in separate tractors so that they can scratch in the dirt, and eat yummy bugs. That also means that they are already acclimated to the weather (here in Kentucky anyway). [​IMG]

    They are all fed a complete feed with treats and are fed and dusted with DE. I keep records of the parents also, if you are interested later in knowing who your birds are from!

    Shipping is USPS Express and I will send you a tracking number. Places that are estimated 24 hour express shipping (for a pair) is 50 and if its 48 hour its 55. This includes the Express shipping, covers the box costs and feed/fruit/etc. that they will be traveling with. You may need to call your local Post Office to see if they accept lives. They will call you when your birds arrive and you will need to pick them up.

    Payments can be made with check, money order or Paypal.

    If you see one you like that is sitting or crouching and you really like the color, PM me and I'll try to get more pics if I have time and if the weather is holding out. Im going to try this weekend to get some more pics on the page of the little ones that are not standing....wish me luck. They dont like photo-ops at this age! [​IMG]

    Pairs for smooth birds are 90

    Check out a rooster from our frizzled line on Eggbid. This is from BriarPatchFarms who also has really great Serama too!

    PM me with the pair that you would like and Ill get them marked pending until you pay, and Sold when you send your payment. First come first serve! Thanks for reading my novel! [​IMG]

    I'll edit to add any new pictures as I can get them. Its been raining a lot here this week! ~Jessi

    BluegrassSeramas, I really liked your birds![​IMG] unfortunately, I dont have the money to get them.[​IMG] so I was wondering, do you sell hatching eggs? and if so, what would be the cost with shipping for 12 eggs to Beverly, WV? Ive got 14 Seramas, including 9 baby ones, and need new bloodlines. (and more birds).
    Thanks!
    Vance.

    Thanks, BluegrassSeramas, I Would like some eggs from B class birds if possible. I had heard that A class dont hatch, Do you know if that is true? I have a C class Serama named Penny, because she laid eggs roughly the size of a penny, but it dosent look like any will hatch:(. I may take one or two dozen.
    Thanks,
    Vance.

    Thanks Vance, I'll PM you. I'll make sure to try and get you eggs from the B class birds and not the A's..... We usually only keep A's that lay a decent sized egg and are proven, so you shouldnt have a problem if you get any in there.

    I just sent all my laying hens to my partner's house today and took all the chicks to raise here on the farm. He has basement coops where he can keep the light on for better egg production. Im going to have to see who is laying as of this moment. Serama are not the best layers at times, but we have quite a few. I think that we might put them up on auctions as the hens lay them so that we can sell them as fresh as possible.

    BluegrassSeramas, is there any way i could get mine first? where would you put them up to auction? if you store them at 55 degrees and turn them twice a day, they should save for a little while. When my hen started laying, I stored them at 65 degrees, and got 5 out of 14. I would like to get them soon to put in the incubator.
    Thanks,
    Vance.

    Hey Vance! Check your email (..........or was it a PM?) I already hooked you up with my Partner's info. [​IMG]
    Shipping eggs is a tricky thing, and we would prefer to send what we get within a week or so to make sure that you get the freshest eggs.

    I know that eggs can keep for quite a while and still hatch--the smaller Serama-mamas here lay for 2 weeks sometimes to get up to 8 eggs and then hatch them out just fine--but people will always want the freshest eggs shipped.
    Also this way you dont have people complaining that they didnt hatch because they were old, if you know what I mean..... [​IMG]

    We like to keep everyone happy!!
