Are Serama roos quieter crowers that full size roos?

    Quote:Some are for sure. It can be more shrill, even if it's quieter. The higher pitch gets annoying.

    Others are really quite quiet. Some are more squeaks than crows. It's pretty much the luck of the draw. I know Bluegrass Seramas breeds for squeaky roosters.

    Thanks! I have a little man now and he isn't too loud yet? I just hope he doesn't get real noisy, I and my daughter are attached to him. [​IMG]

    Since they are smaller, they are generally quieter. Sometimes they make up for the quietness with frequency. A local greenhouse kept a Serama rooster in a cage in their salesroom. He crowed every 30 seconds from daybreak to sunset.[​IMG]
