    I got Serama chicks from a lady who lives 10 minutes away from me a few months back, She also gave me 5 roosters with one being a Crele... Since then I have seen her post many more roosters from her broodys and every single roo was a Crele!!!! I thought Seramas were suppose to be "spontaneous color throwers" in a sense....

    Here is the cockerel she gave me ...

    He's the one scooting in front of the run door in the 2nd pic..

    ALL CRELE!!!! does this mean something that I am hoping it doesnt mean... [​IMG]


    Here is the hen I kept from the babies I got from her.. She's only half sisters to the roosters (same dad different moms)

    ** Pictures are in order from when Star was a baby to what she looks like present day**

    i think you will get all different color out of that breeding and what ever shes breeding is throwing crele every time because she must be breeding the sams pair of birds you can get the same color every breeding out of the same pair change hen or roo and get different colorers ! hope that helps a little . i'm sure others will tell you more .

    serama... yes...

    bared is a sex linked and dominant gene... if you just get black serama, and one bared serama, you can easily breed bared serama in no time... the rest of the color is a toughie though...

    but, i also see some mottling in him... and something else, since the gold doesn't start on the top of his head...

    Quote:Thank you! he has since been sold since I just cant stomach the inbreeding thing an their brother and sister.. I have been trying to figure out what color she is for a month now.. Some say Mottled an some say Mille Fleur with run away white becuase of the Black in her tail feathers..

    Quote:Yes she has just one rooster to 4 hens..

    I guess that would make sense since Star is Mottled an from what I get out of the people who bought Star's siblings, there is quite a few mottled in the batch!​
