“Alisa Kamon with Diamond Seramas, here!
I am honored to be asked to help with the newsletter and
share how some of my members in florida answered this question:
“What is the biggest challenge you face raising birds,
and what did you need to change to meet them?”
G. Meyers Lewis (Ladybug Paradise Poultry.)
I retired in 2016, due to health issues. I needed a therapeutic hobby that would help me through this difficult time in my life.
The biggest challenge I faced raising birds involved finding the needed outdoor space that I felt was important in maintaining a healthy flock.
My next goal was adequate and secure coop housing.
My final challenge was safe food storage, in order to discourage bugs, rodents and critters.
I am a true believer in the saying, “Where there is a will, there is a way.” If you are teetering on the edge and trying to decide if a small backyard flock is right for you, get off the fence and go for it. Not only will you receive the health benefits from having fresh eggs, you will enjoy the stress relief obtained while caring for your precious flock. Your family, friends, and neighbors will reap the benefits as well when you share your baskets of eggs.
The biggest struggle I ever faced raising chickens. Was sticktight fleas transmitted from my neighbors rescued chickens.
It took me over a year of thoroughly cleaning and spraying my coop with harsh chemicals. As well as treating my birds every 2 weeks or so. Finally we are sticktight flea free.
I am limited on space. I quickly learned that large fowl means large space to free range. So, I had to adjust my thought process.
I kept getting smaller and smaller. Now, I breed almost exclusively the smallest recognized breed of chicken in the world, the Serama.
I calculate chicken math and about 4 Seramas count as 1 large fowl chicken.Seramas just make complete sense and solved my space concerns. 🙂

2020 Shows and Results
We started the year strong with 3 shows in Texas, Mississippi and Oklahoma!
Then slowly, the country started shutting down in response to the Corona Virus Pandemic.
Dozens of shows were cancelled nation wide.
How could we keep members engaged and still have the structure of in person exhibition?
The Governing Council made a decision to do something the SCNA has never done before….
A VIRTUAL TABLETOP SHOW
This will be an option for our club until we we are able
to meet again in person to share the joy of tabletop shows!
Take a look back at the in person
and virtual Shows of 2020.
2021 can only get better!
Boot Scootin' Serama Show
Fort Worth, TX
Pearl River Classic
Columbia , MS
Norman , OK
NATIONAL Virtual Show!
Who would have thought we would not be able to hold in person shows!
As COVID plowed across the US,
the Governing Council thought....
"How can we keep our members showing, when they cant leave their homes???"
Soooo....SCNA introduced the first EVER virtual sanctioned tabletop show!
Open to all SCNA members in the country!
It took an army but we got it done!
We have set the standards and programs in place to continue this
method of exhibition until we come out on the other side of this pandemic!
