    My 6 Serama babies that hatched the day after Christmas are now 26 days old. There is becoming quite a difference in size. I expected them all to be size C's, but looks like there will be some size differences. I think I can already see that I have 2 roos and 4 pullets, going by the little combs forming already on the 2 dark feathered ones. Unfortunately, any time I point the camera at them, they think this is the moment of death, and crouch accordingly.
    Here is a pic of the 2 roos--one smaller than the other.

    Here is a couple pics of the largest and smallest pullet. The other 2 pullets are colored the same, and slightly smaller than the larger bird.

    And some pics of the group.

    What do you'all think? Do I have a couple B's in the bunch? They are so cute when you don't have a camera pointed at them. [​IMG] Hope they get more accustomed to it.

    I am not good with Serama sizing; I just wanted to say they are precious [​IMG]

    Judy-I just hatched out 9 new babies this past weekend. They are all different in color, I can't wait to see what there final feathers will look like.

    My first hatch is almost 1 month older than yours and they have all changed color's yet again. I don't think I will be able to make any guesses as to their final sizes until they are closer to full grown. Mine are all different sizes, too.

    Like yours they think the camera is an instrument of torture or death too!

    Your babies are beautiful! Of my older birds I only have one (roo) who is light. Fortunately, of these little babies I have now there are a bunch that are light colors.

    Serama's change so much, so fast!

    Deb--I hope you and others who say they change colors till they are grown are right. I certainly can't fuss about mine--they are the cutest little things, and look so perky until you get out the camera. [​IMG] But, the 2 I think are roos are dark brown, and the 4 I think are pullets are light brown or beige. I was hoping to have some red highlights in there on at least one. But probably/maybe one of the roos will have some,when his "pretty" feathers come in.
    How many eggs did you set to get the 9 you hatched out?

    Spooky, are you showing photos of your new pair?? Would love to see them.
