    Here is a pic of Pepper, one of my 2 Serama eggs that hatched. He/She lost her hatch buddy 4 days ago and had a hard time adjusting. Thanks to everyone who gave me pointers on how to help her out. They worked. Doing much better now.
    Here with my son, one of her new buddies. Just thought it was kind of cute.

    Adorable little chick! Reminds me of my hand-raised turk when she was young. She LOVED my shoulder. 5 years later, she still likes to be carried around.

    They tell me she trills very quietly when she is walking around their chins. It is a sweet sound. Usually quiet in her "house" now unless she wants to perch, then the peeping becomes very loud. After a spell she is quite happy when we put her back.

    I have serama eggs coming from your neck of the woods "Lolita" in the faint hope that we can get her 1 or 2 chicken buddies [​IMG]

    Quote:Isn't that the sweetest sound ever? I have never heard a chick make it. Admittedly its been a long time since I have had chicks. Hoping for the best but it is snowing like crazy, and keeping the bator going during inevitable power outages will be a challenge.

    Thanks to everyone for good wishes, and have a wonderful holiday.
