    We were given this chicken as a tiny chick, he is about 8 weeks old. Has down turned duck style wings and has a small comb on head. As you can see in picture standing on hand, he is very small breed. Thanks for any help.

    yep it's a serama roo. [​IMG] what a cutie too and will be a nice looking fellow when he gets his adult look.
     
  5. Yep, serama. Take care of this one. Try to keep it seperated from the other chickens. The small size is a disadvantage and the bigger chickens can hurt them. We have a few seramas and they are in the small chicken coop. They have thier own little run and coop that is integrated. They are perfectly happy and the other chickens come down and yuck it up with them !!

    The hen has gone broody !!

    That is a super adorable, awsome little Serama! Ya gotta love them. [​IMG]
    I don't mix bantams with big girls, but other bigger bantams are in with my Seramas and I got to say my Seramas rule the coop.
