    hey yall!!! i have a question about the "silkie seramas" i dot know if they are a breed of their own, or a mix between a silkie and a serama?

    can anybody share their knowledge with me??

    i only saw them once at a breeders home, he wouldnt sell them though

    i fell in love with them little things immediately, but havent been able to find anyone that sell them...

    and i dont want to get cheated on, cus someone tried to sell me a cross from a silkie and a serama for 30 bucks each!!!

    so before i buy, i would like to know.

    They are a breed of their own. They are a serama with silkie feathers and they are stinkin' cute!

    it's just a mutation that came out of seramas... the same as frizzle... since serama are genetic soup, they keep coming out with more and more traits out of nowhere... such as, booted/feathered feet, rosecombs, and i heard someone had a naked neck serama... i didn't here it here, but i saw it on another forum somewhere... i'll have to look for it again to make sure, so don't quote me on that...

    Good quality silkie seramas are pretty expensive....more than $30 for sure. Most seramas are more than $30. Don't quote me, but that has been what I have found out around where i live.

    btw, don't buy mixed for that much cash... i will never buy a mixed ornamental chicken for more than 5 dollars myself... unless it's a sex link, or egg/meat bird... then maybe... but yeah... that's dumb... some serama breeders give non-show quality serama away...

    also... silkie seramas are very expensive... i will like to own one, but they are too expensive for me right now... the cheapest i've seen them locally were like 150 a pair... too much money for so little bird... LOL... they're gorgeous, but man... but i do see that they are worth the moneys... and i guess they will pay themselves off if the hen lays... but it will take me forever to make the money back... i'm so cheap... LOL...

    Nice Seramas!! I have been doing some research on Seramas as I wanted to add a couple to my collection of chickens (13 to be exact..) But the more
    I find about the breed the more I would be very skeptical on buying from just anyone.
    I am also from MN and to find a Serama around here is like seeing a lizard sunbathing in the wild...[​IMG]
