    I'm curious. I imagine they don't but do hatcherys ever mess with them?

    Sure, most of the big hatcheries have Silkies. They just aren't always the best examples, not as pretty as the show birds. They won't be sexed, though, since they are so small.

    I am so bummed. One of my Serama hens has some respiratory problem. Clicks and wheezing and gurgles when she breathes, and the occasional wet sneeze. I squirted some Denegard down her gullet last night, but no improvement today. I'll keep at it a few more days, but if it's not mycoplasma based, it won't help anyway. No sign of any of the other bantams with problems. Yet. [​IMG]

    Thanks wishing. I really didn't think they would. If they come from a hatchery even though they're silkies would they be less likely go broody?

    I've only had one Silkie. Edna Mode came with 2 bantam Cochins I got from a breeder, just to have some broody hens. She was supposed to have been a hatchery bird (looked like it) and was VERY broody. She died unexpectedly earlier this year.

    I actually have too many broodies! Only one little pipsqueak rooster who seems to be infertile, so no need for all the broodsters.

    Ohh sorry she died wishing. And keep us posted on your serama. I hope she makes a fast and full recovery.
