Silkied Ball Serama

In 2010, I began raising 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:

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.

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.

Lil Blue took a year to produce babies.

Here is her next clutch.

This is Gyda with her first clutch.

This is Clodagh.

Clodagh hatched 7 chicks on August 1st.

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?
