    I have some Seramas that as 1 to 3 year old adults that weigh 3.75 to 5.25 ounces (as small as Northern Bob White Quail) that lay these eggs. They are complete eggs with yokes (unlike tiny mishap chicken eggs that have no yokes). When they hatch as many as 4 chicks fit into a teaspoon.

    3.75 to 5.25 oz! Those are some tiny seramas...
    I have never heard of them being that tiny before.
    Judging from the pics, the wire behind the seramas are either 1/2'' by 1'' or 2'' by 1''.

    I 'd guess the wire is more so on the 2'' by 1'' side.
    So I'm guessing they are about 7 inches tall.
    Is that about right?

    That is pretty small.
