Well... Little Millie Serama is still so tiny, but she started developing a waddle and a really red comb! Hmmmm, it was housed as always with its nest mate who was just a little bigger but a cross breed roo that knew he was a Roo from the beginning!
Never once has Millie even tried to crow so oooooooooo, I assumed I had a little hen for sure!
I decided to separate the girls from the boys for the winter and give them a snug home in the brooder cage with a 40 watt light. Open the house door so that they could choose to stay in the warmth or go out onto the run as needed! I kept the Roos, old Copper Jack and Carrot , in the larger chicken run with a bantam Hen to keep them company.
The Rest of the Story as you might have already guessed... Millie decided with the new company that it was definitely time to assert his (ahem) Manly-ness! Yep Millie's new name is now Calico Serama!! He is surely a little devil with the girls !
Hee Hee!! Even Little Chickopea, who I thought coulnt lay any more, layed her usual little tiny Hiccup eggie, then as you can tell from the different colors to these eggs , we have two from Tater and two from Chicky-baby!!
No I dont plan on letting them hatch, Just tickled to death that they arrived!! I cant wait for Spring now!!!
Thanks for all those great pics,so nice to hear them chicken names again.I`ll be glad when my girls all start laying again,I have never seen such an awful molt as this one,some were almost naked in spots,they are just starting to get there feathers back,good thing we have had mild weather here,in the 60`s today unheard of for us this late in the season but loving every minute of it and so are the girls they got to free range all afternoon and get bugs and stuff.
Hi Tamberlin! Sure Id be happy to send you some eggies,! I would wait until warmer weather though. we have had temps in the 20's and back into the 70's for over two weeks now...crazy weather...not good for eggies!!
donna thank you! Ive reduced my flocks so drastically that it doesnt even seem like my little farm. All my babies are now cooped into 3 areas and do not get to free range any longer. As soon as I can get my caregiving travels , to my Parents, on a better schedule, I hope to get started with a new plan for breeding Seramas . Still looking for a girlie Brahma for my "Wambli".
