    These are the ultimate bantams. We got eggs from Blue Grass Seramas last year and hatched them out. They have all been kept indoors in breeding pens. Our chickens are hand raised with love, around kids and noisy dogs. They are fed Organic feeds.

    We have 10+ chicks for $10.00 each born Sept 16th. We know the sex of some, but are selling as straight run. They go outside with their portable heaters, their Silkie moms, each day. Here's a picture from last week. Check out the slide show for much better pictures of them. We also have new borns that are not pictured.

    These are for pick up only. We have no experience shipping chickens.
    Please see our other listings for teenage and full grown Seramas.

    Seramas also called Malaysian Seramas are fond companions. They are more popular than cats and dogs in Malaysia. Here in the States they are a new addition, being imported in the year 2000. This makes them very uncommon. They are known for their small size, friendly personalities (they seek out human interaction), and heat resilience. Seramas also mature quickly. Laying begins at 4-5 months of age. It takes roughly 5 average Serama eggs to equal 1 Grade AA Large egg.

    They can be kept happily indoors. We have ours housed inside. We can show you how to build a lovely and easy cage for less than $20.00. They love to have perches at various levels to jump around on. Extra care must be taken if housing them outside. Their small size makes them more vulnerable to attack from animals that normally you wouldn’t need to worry about, like cats. They are sensitive to temperatures below 40 degrees. They are after all from a tropical land. You’ll need to supply additional heat in cold weather. A 75 to 100 watt bulb positioned for them to move closer or farther away as needed would be perfect. Smaller feed bills because of their diminutive size.

    They are great for 4-H. Easily handled, small size means they take up little space, unique in the group, and easily table trained.

    They are a great alternative to a parrot. They’re a friendly domesticated animal and not wild caught. Seramas live to around 8-10 years, like a reg chicken, which means they won’t outlive you. And you get eggs!
