    I have decided to keep another pullet from my Serama babies but I cant decide on WHICH pullet... right now its between Miracle and Cassidy...

    Miracle is kind of a special baby.. she was an assisted hatch and when I went to place her back in the incubator after chipping the egg down to the tips of her toes, she accidently slid out of the shell and was "downed" (laid like she was still in the egg) for a full day and a half... Cassidy on the other hand I thing has good potential.. Cassidy likes showing off where as Miracle is kind of shy...

    Heres Miracle..

    Oh....why you can't keep both? I guess if I HAD to choose, I would pick the wee one. She's a fighter.

    Quote:I would keep both if I could, but Im only selling birds as pairs and I have 2 cockerels and I need to pick one of these girls as the one to stay and one as the one to go...

    Quote:Cassidy is very "typey"! so far I have kept 2 good quaility chicks who are very "typey" also from this hatch an one who I havent seen "type" in yet because she's always trying to run away, but I kept her because of her color... it comes down to these two where I stick with my plan of keeping good "type" birds or go with sentimental..
