    For sale is a Frizzled Silkied Serama cockeral, hatched mid-June, 2010. He is from my very own line of original Frizzled Silkied Seramas. The frizzled gene works the same way in Silkieds as it does in smooth-feathered seramas...Mate this boy to a silkied serama and the offspring will be all silkieds, but half will be Frizzled! Shipping is $50 for a USPS approved box, and my flock is NPIP & AI certified. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

    I have been asked about a Silkied Serama girl for this boy, so I will offer this girl as an option to the winning bidder for $15.00 at the end of the auction. Shipping for the two birds will then be $60.00.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I have to say I found last night, that a couple of my girls have been "hen-pecking" some of my silkied boys...! The boys just sat there while the girls pecked at their "manes" (neck feathers). It was breezy yesterday, so I guess those feathers waving in the breeze (more like fur), were just too irresistible! It's only their neck feathers, and only Tony has a bald spot big enough to even show on camera, but I did want everyone to know about it before bidding, so I'm posting this for all my silkied boys, just so you know they're not sick, nor do they have mites, they're just "hen-pecked"!!! I'll be giving them plenty of extra hard-boiled egg to speed the regrowth of those feathers!

    Quote:Well, all in all, my birds are fairly calm...that's not to say they LIKE having their pictures taken! I have a harder time keeping them standing up for their picture, they like to just plop on the ground or start pecking the ground when they see the camera, which does not make them look good at all! And, I have to give most of the credit to my son, who takes the photos for me...it definitely helps to have two people!

    I'm really curious about the set up/camera for your photos too! Do you have additional photo lighting? It looks like a studio, LOL.
    I get some good photos but I also get alot of the back of their heads as well due to the slight delay in the camera. I think I have a pretty decent camera, but I've never gotten the clarity that you have in your photos!
