    It looks like a couple more of my kids want to raise showbirds for 4-H. We're trying to locate a Serama. I've seen eggs for sale, but we've never incubated eggs before so I'm not real sure that's something I want to get involved with. Would prefer pullets due to noise considerations, but I'm guessing that the roosters wouldn't be too loud based on their size?

    Where in MI are you? I have some serama eggs in the bator now that are due to hatch in a couple days and some I just set last nite. They would have to be straight run. I can send pics if you'd like.

    We are in Augusta, which is in southwest Michigan between Kalamzoo and Battle Creek.

    So how loud are the roosters?

    Hello. We just had 8 Serama chicks hatch this past Sunday. I am in mid-Michigan, Flint area. I would let a few go, but there is no way I can sex them. If you are interested, let me know. Pick-up only, I don't want to ship these. I have 1 Serama rooster, and live in a neighborhood. No one has complained yet, but somedays he does seem louder than others.

    I just read at :
    http://www.geocities.com/jerrysseramasllc/juniors.html

    To further promote the SERAMA and to help achieve the Serama Council of America's goal of making the American Serama the Number One Bantam Breed in North America by the year 2010, I'm offering pairs of these PURE BLOOD beauties FREE OF CHARGE to 4-H members. Request for these birds must accompany a letter of introduction from a Country Agent or 4-H Leader on Official Stationary attesting to the validity of the request. This offer is contingent on my ability to ship (Express Mail) to your area. A $50 fee is requested to cover the cost of shipping container, insurance and postage. Also a FREE one year membership to the Serama Council of North America is included with this offer.

    Thought you might be interested in getting some from the origional importer! [​IMG]

    How many are you interested in? I have to save some or my daughter would be very upset with me. How does $10 each sound? This is my first time selling them and want to be fair. Thanks.
