    My Serma chicks are 3 weeks old and I can definatly tell who are my roosters and who are my pullets. I was wondering if it is normal thing that some of the chicks are like half the size of others, born at the same time. Should I focus on breeding and keeping the smaller birds?

    Thanks for the tips Serama breeders:)

    Hi, I am not a serama breeder. I actually do not breed any chickens, because cant keep roosters. Just keep a few chickens as pets. In the past, I did have serama hens. The person that I got them from ( most likely amateur breeder) told me that there were 3 general sizes of seramas. He was hatching out the middle size. He also told me that the very smallest were very difficult to raise. I only am passing on what he told me.. No reason for you not to experiment. I think the tiniest sold as full grown would bring in the best price. I have not seen seramas offered for sale at any of the popular hatcheries. Looks like only select breeders are choosing to raise them.
    WISHING YOU BEST. [​IMG]
