Just as I was beginning to suffer from serious DG Withdrawal...an Angel sent me a renewal! Now I just happen to know who did it (pretty sure anyway)... so just as soon as I can get back up on my feet from all the crazies around here.. I will try to play angel right back at 'em! Hee hee!
Thank you Dear Angel, You saw my tears when I realized I had taken photos of my newest maturing Serama and realized I couldnt show them off to my DG friends.
So Dear Ones Im back and heres the photos I took of the 4 month old Serama Hen that is so small that she could still fit into a teacup. I am so excited that I had to share with you! E

Glad you are back Eufaula. Beautiful little serama. Things have been slow around here lately with Haystack gone, but at least some new comers have come along and started a few threads. Maybe things will pick back up.

This summer was the hardest one I've ever lived through. I lost two of my hens. Another one has an eye infection of some sort. It was completely covered over in a scab type of thing before I took her seriously and brought her in to examine her. I held a wet rag to her eye for ages and finally got that caked gunk off, but her other eye looks milky colored and this eye closed again and is oozing something. Any suggestions? I put a big blob of neosporin on her eyes yesterday. I read there are some contageous diseases that can make their eyes do this. So far my other chickens seem fine, except for one that I hope is molting. She looks terrible with so many of her feathers gone, but her eyes are fine.

Keep the pictures coming Eufaula. God Bless, and thanks to whoever stepped in in the crisis.

Awwww thanks everyone!
Yes my tiny baby girl is the smallest at this age I have ever seen. Her coloration is definitely different.She started out being all white, then developed the buff and brown speckles. She isnt agressive at all and she is learning to "table" too. I am hoping to go to my first show on the 22 of October and learn a few things about showing Seramas. I wont be taking any of my babies with me , just going to check it all out.
IN the mean time Ive begun culling down and finding new homes for a lot of my LF Hens. I just went over board with the amount of breeds I have. I really needed to stick with just the ones I want to show and concentrate on them. The feed bill was getting enormous and I just couldnt keep them all properly penned . I really wanted to have all Dark Egg layers (Marans, Welsummers, Penedescencas(sp)) but I found that they just werent as friendly and productive as my Buff Orpingtons and the Barred Rocks Im used to.
Im going to try and find a Dark Brahma Hen to go along with them ,to keep my huge Baby Man "Wambli" company. HE is definitely not going anywhere. Hes Mama's baby.
L_F_J , So sorry to hear about your loss and I hope your Hen gets well really soon. Ive never had an eye problem with any of mine so I couldnt Comment on your treatment , but it sounds like you are doing the right thing.

Must have done something right because one of her eyes is open today and a nice black color, the other one almost clear of the milky color. Her head looks kind of greasy from the neosporin, otherwise she is getting better it seems. Still don't know what caused this. My other chickens seem fine and she was in the same pen with the rest of them. She is a new one I bought about four months ago.

Great!! Hmm, sounds like ..just maybe.. the other hens did a little "pecking order" on her. Hopefully everything will continue as it should.

Maybe not sad for him, he's probably having a wonderful time touring Europe and Alaska. Better there than glued to the computer, I'd say. He'll be back when he's ready, if he ever is. I'm really happy for him. He deserved a nice break, and he took it.

I never 'talked' to him but enjoyed his answers to the problems .
E , does Wambli follow you around ? I've heard they can be big pets , almost like a dog .

Hi Digger, nice to see you here! Ive got to get you a couple of Seramas , you can keep them in a big bird cage, in the house with you and let them range during the day!
Yes Wambli does follow me everywhere! He is getting bigger and bigger everyday. I have trouble picking him up now because of his size. Hes a big baby! I do need to find him an appropriate sized mate though. Because of the slow maturing with Brahmas, I havent had to worry about his bothering the hens yet! Soon to come though! I really would love to find a Dark Brahma girl, but any brahmas would do or a Dorking Hen. Hes definitely a keeper!

Oofie , I just gave away an expensive bird because he was caged and obnoxious . I have three dogs, a cat and a feral cat that eats here . I don't need another bird . I'll just come down and love on yours , but your P P would be jealous. Maybe be a possibility . Hugs

I tried to get a good photo of her next to this can so you could see her size better. She just wouldnt cooperate. The can scared her too much, it didnt belong in her home and she let me know that my friend needed to take it out! LOL! But as you can see she isnt even as tall as the container, actually I could sit her insde the can cozy!

Ive been calling her "Snack box",since that would be all she would make for some varmit, if they were ever able to get a hold of her! So I reallllly need to think up a much better name for her. I was thinking about "Millie", because of her coloration, whatcha think?
