I currently have a flock of all pullets Bardrocks, Sapphire Gems and Rhode Island reds 2 of each.

I am wanting to add a Serama or two to the flock just because I think they are some awesome looking birds and I would love to spoil them. Now I will have to say I am very ignorant when it comes to such as I am new to all of this. I have no idea if I should happen to get a Serama rooster if it will breed with my normal size birds. I got the flock I have for the purpose of egg production for consumption only not for breeding. My wife would crap if she went to crack open an egg and a baby chick was inside. Second I would need chicks as I have no way of hatching eggs. I live in Memphis TN. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,
Chris Q.

Well chicks are straight run, so you'll get males.
No, a class A serama will not be able to breed large fowl hens and pullets. A class A Serama is about the size of a pop can. They should not be kept with large fowl chickens, they are so small they could easily be injured or killed.

Third, a fertile egg does not just all of a sudden produce a fully formed chick. You can't tell a fertile egg from a non fertile egg super easily like that, you have to actually look for the blastocyst.

Lastly, class A seramas can't be ranked by size until they are adults.

Thank you for all the information Cyprus. This was extremely helpful!
