    why do you people torture me! I really really want to hatch them out but I hear they are difficult. I may try them next year when I can read how to hatch them

    I've got a mille fluer roo serama chick and i think when he gets older i'm goin to breed him in with this some kind of mix that looks sort of perky and very colorful and weighs probably 5 or 6 pounds and then breed those chicks back with some serama in the hopes of making really colorful BIG "serama type birds.think there's any hope? Oh, and yes, serama chicks are very cute.

    we have found its the humidity.. we have purchased shipped eggs and had high hatch rates but we bring up our humidity to over 70% when we quit turning [​IMG]
    They seem really sensitive to the humidity.. BUT THEY ARE SO CUTE... so tiny.. like a lays you cannot have just one [​IMG]

    How exciting Sarah.. waiting on those first pips seem to take FOREVER!!! HAHA
    Then ours seem to snowball, once one starts hatching its like an alarm goes off and they all try to be the next one out.. [​IMG]
