    I had my first Serama baby on the 10th of this month, it seems to be doing fine, but we do have an issue. It goes backwards most of the time and keeps getting on its back and then it can't get back up. I am afraid it will die on it's back. What is going on with him and is there anything I can do to help. Also he chirps constantly, he is lonesome I know because we don't have any body to go with him, he was a lone hatch. Thanks everyone in advance [​IMG]

    Hey Kbell, I have my babies in my office and watch them all the time. Lots of times they are on their backs and end up that way and die. It stinks but all you can do it watch them. After a week it seems they learn to roll over lol. They are so small when first hatched and its hard for them to get around.
