    Hi! I didn't see a place to put this so I'm going to put it here.

    Does anyone have experience with teaching seramas how to pose? Any help is welcome!

    Thanks

    Seriously? That sounds about as easy as teaching a horse to stand on it's head. [​IMG]

    I was thinking more of taxidermy.

    You would maybe like your chicken to pose like this?

    I'm no expert, but I'm thinking that stance has more to do with the bird's conformation and structure than any trained behavior. My background is in dogs where you selectively breed for the structure that gets you the look you want. In dogs you can gait them or stand them a certain way (stack) to accentuate good structure but you can't "train" good structure if it isn't there to begin with.
