    Totally new to Seramas, and I have come across a question regarding showing.

    So, one of mine is a "normal" Serama, it has the standard feathers. I have another that I was told was a "Silkie Serama", a Serama with Silkie feathers.

    Now, when they say Silkie Serama, do they mean just simply a cross breed of a Silkie and a Serama, for backyard and hobbyist pets, or is it now an accepted variety of Serama (as in showable)?

    Thanks everyone!

    It could be either one, I would like some pics please! There is a variety of serama called Silkied, I have a silkied hen, [​IMG]

    This is what they look like all grown up! If you got the silkied from the same person as the Strait feathered it is likely that it is purebred

    Haha, i got a pic {^~^} You can barely tell that the Silkie (or Silked?) one is a so unless you look close. Must be the age, i knew my Naked Neck silies looked the same at their age (or, at least, what i expect their age to be)

    Here ya go! Yes, the lady at the farm store told me they came from a Serama breeder, so that could be it {^~^} Thanks for your help!

    That appears to be a purebred, I would guess they are about 4-5 weeks old, Good Luck!
