Seramas are one of the worlds’ smallest recognized breeds..the smallest chicken in the world! A full grown rooster is about the size of a pigeon. Seramas have a very tame and gentle disposition, making them great pets since they are easily handled. Once you see these cute little beauties you wont be able to resist. Seramas are one of our specialty breeds here at the farm – this means they need some specialized, or custom care beyond what a “typical” chicken would have.
Since the birds are tropical in nature in the winter they might need supplemental heat – if 40 degrees or below. Here in Vermont we get temps below that and provide them with heat. Some keep them indoors in the winter or year round if they have cold winters. They are docile, friendly and like human interaction. They can be trained and love to show off both the hens and the roosters. Predator proof housing and runs are a must because of their size. The roosters make wonderful companions are full of personality and make great pets or can integrate with other flock members. The hens tend to go broody and love to be spoiled. We find too many roosters and not enough hens may cause dominance conflicts so make sure to have enough hens to rooster ratios. They can also be kept in the home as pets.
The babies when hatched are very fragile and need some extra care, we don’t sell any babies under 2 weeks of age. Because of their fragile nature, we will lo longer be shipping chicks, they are available for farm pickup at 3 weeks of age. We will have fully feathered available and hatching eggs.
Seramas do not breed true to any one particular color. Seramas come in over 2000+ varieties of colors. Part of the fun is not knowing what you will hatch, they are considered a landrace breed. Babies can be different sizes when hatched. We have the frizzle, silked and smooth feathered varieties and many color patterns. Their eggs are white to a variety of shades in between and light tan. Our birds are Non-GMO and vaccinated for Marek’s Disease. We have obtained for 2021 new stock that is exceptional and we have some unique color patterns. Our breeders are bred to APA Standards.
Give this cute little breed a try you wont be disappointed!
Seramas originated in Malaysia, where they are the number one house pet, outnumbering dogs and cats. The rooster crow is adorable! Seramas were brought to the USA in 2001, so they are relatively new.
The complete ancestry of the Serama is uncertain and there are many claims and myths regarding it’s origin. Some theories date as far back to the 1600s and to the Thai King Sri Rama, although there is no documented evidence to prove this.The creator of the modern Serama bantam is Wee Yean Een. In 1971 he began a breeding program that would see Ayam Kapans crossed with Japanese bantams and Silkies.
Feed Recommendations: we recommend starting baby chicks out with Sugar Feather Farm chick starter for the first 3 weeks, then switch to our Chicken Grower. Use the Grower Feed until they hit maturation (which is when they start to lay) then switch to Sugar Feather Farm Adult Feed.
We highly recommend using the Oil of Oregano in their water daily as a supplement to aid with digestion and overall health.
Pre-ordered adults and hatchlings may be picked up by appointment. To safeguard our birds from exposure to disease brought in by visitors, in accordance with the provisions of the National Poultry Improvement Plan, areas where birds are kept are off limits. However you are welcome to look at all the breeds and interactions, it is a site to see.
