    Are there any Serama breeders in the pacific Northwest? I REALLY want a Serama or two...But I know how rare they are to find.

    Actually - it wasn't too hard. I lucked out and someone in my town raises them, so I get all I want. [​IMG]

    That is awesome. I hope I get that lucky haha. It is also harder since I am out of state for college and I cant keep chickens here. So I kind of have to do all my searching while I am home for breaks.

    You can find hatching eggs on eggbid or ebay.

    I didn't know that they were that rare... I have two Serama hens, and three roosters... they were all given to me (the roos were chicks) by someone who lives close by, and he'll be taking them back soon. (he's making room) Sorry it's hard to find them where you are - you should be able to order some from a hatchery though - if you want to raise chicks.

    Yea I am thinking of going in that direction. I will have to wait until May when my summer break starts and I am back at home. I doubt my parents will actually raise the chicks for me haha.

    I am also attenting a show in March so maybe I can find something there. Thanks for all the tips everyone!
