    PHILLIP78 New Egg

    I recently picked up 7 SERAMA eggs from a local breeder. I have them in a custom ice chest incubator with dual heat lamps and dual circulation fans. I learned after I started them they are difficult to hatch.
    I have the incubator on my patio which is in south Louisiana; Our humidity is so high you can barely start a fire with diesel. I was advised to not introduce my water for humidity until around 15 days. im running 99.6 temp. This advice is from the breeder which has a 85% success rate with his.
    Has anyone discovered the secret to success with the SERAMA. Please advise and or pass on any tips you may have discovered.

    The person I got seramas from only used the natural, Yes chickens put to work. He bred the mid size ones, not the tiniest variety. I cant help you with incubator since never used one. HOPING THINGS SUCCEED FOR YOU
