    Hi - My first itty bitty Sermara chick hatched today - so darn cute. But I am wondering if they need any special care. I was thinking I'll sorta mash up the chick starter because the crumbles look too big for the little guy.

    Anything think else I should know?

    I have ordered more sermara eggs so he/she can have friends but that'll take at least a month.

    Thank you.

    Congrats on your baby Serama. I have some hatching now. Hope I get more than one or two from the batch!

    Thank you! This little guy came in a mixed batch of eggs I bought on e-bay. Turned out to be the one fertile..or should I say developed! Shipped eggs make for expensive chicks! But I can't seem to stop my self from buying and trying!

    I have three incubators full right now!! I may end up divorced but that's okay my animals will keep me company!!

    Have a nice evening.
