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.
(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.

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.

Bjorn, my main stud.

Gracie hatches first clutch. Doesn't like camera.

This is Tumbleweed.
Tribbles can look round from any angle.

When I saw a young Tumbleweed sleeping like this,
I realized that I had living Tribbles!

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?
