Silkied Ball Serama

In 2009, I began raising purebred Serama chickens.
In America, everyone follows the standard for upright birds with narrow waists & huge chests.
In Malaysia, there are four types of Serama that are bred. Dragon, Apple, Slim & Ball.
I chose to develop my birds in the Ball style.

I breed birds with the Silkied mutation. These birds are not used in Malaysia.
I call these Silkied Ball Serama - Tribbles

The standard I strive to develop is:

  • Spherical body shape.

  • Extremely thick, plush coat in all areas of the bird.

  • Yellow legs are preferred but all colors are acceptable.

  • Any ear color is acceptable.

  • Combs can have any number of points. They can have a wave but should not droop.

  • All of the beautiful rainbow of Serama colors are acceptable.
    I am now focusing on Silver & Blue.

Other Serama are classified by their weight.
I want fat birds so I size my birds by height instead.
I offer them a rich diet & entice them to stuff themselves & become dense little balls.

If you're interested in showing birds, there are no categories anywhere for Silkied Ball Serama.
Shows aren't my thing. I'm into creating extremely lovable pets.

caution: May trigger control freaks & Tribble bullies.

(edit): I have been told that you can show unique birds in a category called 'tabletop'.

My line of Tribbles all started with Peanut & Lil Blue.
They came from two smooth feathered parents.
I still keep a few smooth-feathered hens to breed feather strength into my stock.

I originally sought to develop these birds because I was sad that Micros live such a short life.
I thought that a bird with an abdominal cavity that wasn't constricted by any standards might have a better chance of survival?
