    Ok, I know they are hard to brood as it is, but I don't think the other eggs are going to hatch. So...do I brood this one with the LF chicks, because they are over twice the size of my itty tiny serama. I am so in love already. Any other advice? Any tips with raising seramas!

    I raised my serama with other bantams...the only thing that I did was grind up the chick starter to make it easier for the serama to eat. I don't think the LF chicks would hurt him/her. The only other thing you could do is run out and get him a little bantam friend :)

    I hatched 3 polish but they're pretty big too. This little guy is the size of my thumb. And he won't stop chirping loudly in the bator. I think he's lonely. I guess I'll try the polish.

    Good luck, I think he will be just fine and much less lonely :)
