Fresh Serama Breeding Stock

Not knowing where to house them, I constructed an enclosure made of PVC for these little chickens to roam about and keep them in a cage at night. They appear to be happy & healthy without me worrying about chickens running out of control ;)

My New Shama

In exchange for a 9" Shama, I took home this shorter tailed one....

Sired by a 10" bird, non of it's offspring showed any long tail tendencies. I am keeping it for genetic reasons. Also to see how far it could go in competitions, being a captive bred specimen.

Molting aviary

Its towards end or quarter 3 ... and luckily like clockwork.... all Shamas are molting.
Thought I indulged a little bit and prepare a bigger cage for one of the birds....

Hope he does well in there.

New addition to the flock.... cheapest "long tail" I can find hehehe!
Can't get the Long-tailed Shama, just settle for long-tailed chicken ;)
Anyway, the theory of breeding genetics should be the same.... more venue for practice ;)

Update (23/9): was told by a friend that this is a Yokohama, and another friend that it's the Silver Phoenix. Am confused.... anyway I like it's long tail and pheasant like body shape whatever it is going to be ;)

Male Serama

Found a Serama cock for my lone hen at home.... now, where the hell am I going to house the all :D ......

Bengal Cat

Helping a friend's quest for the perfect Bengal cat.... we found for him a 1st generation (F1) cross of the local Leopard cat. Two female of breeding age.

I still cannot understand the process.... wishing him luck.

How nice if the breeding of the original Leopard Cat is allowed....

Red Jungle Fowl

A specimen of the Red Jungle Fowl hatched from eggs collected from the jungle.... taken during a visit to a friend's house.

Waiting game

Sent 20 Sebright Bantam's eggs to the hatchery to be incubated today. Will be happy with a 30% hatch rate. In fact will be happy with any rate above zero hahaha!

Now the waiting game begins....
