    Hi all,

    Looking for some advice from anyone with experience of Seramas? I have a tiny garden in an urban area (houses all around in very close proximity) and I have two hybrid hens. I'm absolutely in love with chicken keeping and I am desperately keen to have some more girls. I think I have space for another coop and run set up and I like the look of Serama hens. I know people say that the roosters crow is quieter, but I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if the hens are generally a bit quieter than the average hen or not? My two hybrids are quiet most of the time but they don't half make a racket when it's egg laying time.

    Many thanks for any thoughts :)

    My Serama hens are much quieter than other Bantam breeds which are more quiet than any of my large fowl.
    Same goes for the roosters.
    Serama hens are not weekly layers. They will lay a clutch of eggs, go broody and may not lay again for almost six weeks. The hens are much smaller than my other Bantam hens and their eggs are smaller as well.
