    Hi just me 2 cents hatching serama eggs in a incubator. I am currently getting 100% hatch rate in my cheap Chinese incubator. While some hatch dry and with full sized eggs it seems to work well my experience in dry California is a little more humidity with the small eggs really helps these guys hatch better out of their shell. My seramas tend to get stuck if the humidity was on the lower side so approx 30% humidity seems to work like a dream until hatch is close then I up the humidity to 60-65% or so. Course shipped eggs are always a gamble and I have much better luck with my own. Just hatched a batch of with my chocolate cuckoo female and frizzled male.

    What a gorgeous pair! You're so lucky - we don't have the serama breed here in New Zealand. They are so adorable (I love little bantams). I use a cheap Chinese incubator and have great success with Coturnix and Button quail eggs. That's all I can hatch out in suburbia! It's great you've been getting such good hatch rates. Got any chick photos? :D They must be so gorgeous!

    This is my serama pullet as a chick! Unfortunately I didn't have much luck with shipped serama eggs. Out of six, only one hatched under a broody hen.
