    I'd like to find out more about seramas, just . . . in case. What's there temperament like? Are they good house pets? How are they in cold weather?
    And, most importantly,- Who sells serama hatching eggs? [​IMG]
    Thanks!

    Incredibly lovable and trusting birds. Watch out, they're like candy to a lot of other animals.
    They are the most popular housepet in Malaysia.
    Peanut just made it fine through 2 weeks of temps down into the teens at times.
    She seems to have grown lots of downy fluff and not many real feathers yet, even at 13 weeks.
    I wrap a quilt around the nestbox where they all sleep. I took her and her brother inside on cold mornings.

    Peanut is really, really cute. Good thing Peanut is a non-gender specific name. HE will make a gorgeous rooster!

    Really?
    He/she has grown quite a bit in the last few days,
    including the comb and wattles.

    The bird is so tiny, I figured it had to be a female?
    I've raised a couple of Serama from eggs and Peanut is much smaller than the others were.
    I really wish I could find my scale.

    they can be tricky, I set them and don't touch the till day 18, it also depends on the size of the parents B&C's hatch better than A's, i go 50% humidty and they like to hatch a day or 2 early
