I have had several on different occasions, either had to re-home them in the past or they have crossed that Rainbow Bridge.
On September 29, the most precious, loving and all around special little Serama pullet hatched at my house.
|Maybelline - 4 days old|
Maybelline is from the Castle Delight Seramas line. I have waited a long time to have some eggs from my friend, Laura, and finally I have a little pullet!
|Maybelline - 5 days old|
She arrived on this earth with a special sweetness about her. An immediate attachment to me. I have adored all of the Seramas I have hatched, but Maybelline found a place in my heart that no other chickens have.
|Maybelline - 12 days old|
When she hatched and was brown. I thought maybe, just maybe, I would finally have a chocolate colored chicken.
|Maybelline - 34 days old|
She didn't stay brown, but I love her all the same. One day I will have some chocolate chickens! Until then, Maybelline lives in the house, in a very large cage. She was living with a pair of Seramas I had hatched from other lines, but they weren't nice to her at all, and now live elsewhere. David and I both decided they had to go, Maybelline is too sweet and special to have to live with bullies.

The photo above was when Felicity was home from school after she had her tonsils removed. Maybelline acts like one of the dogs. I let her out of her cage at least once a day and she wanders around the family room, but mostly wants in someone's lap to hang out.
This video isn't great, but you can hear how she responds to me. All of the other chickens I have had never have done this. She does it all the time.
