    what is the difference between OEGB and seramas? to my untrained eye they look very, very alike.
    if anyone wants to post pics that show the differences that would be fantastic!
    thanks ya'll.

    Dont have pics, but a Serama is smaller for one thing. Mainly, the Serama has a more upright tail, a more upright back (means he stands real tall) and wings are held vertically. Where an Old English is a little more horizontal than a Serama.

    I think the main things are (1) size and (2) ancestry.
    OEGB are descended primarily from english fighting stock, whereas Seramas are descended primarily from Silkie, Cochin, and Chabo (I think.)
