    Any opinions? I love the thought of a pretty little hen to join my flock.

    Naturally, I favor Sebrights. They're one of my favorite breeds, but Seramas are also nice too. Both are small breeds. I know Sebrights can stand up for themselves [​IMG] but I have no idea how Seramas act in a mixed breed flock.

    Poultryhaven,
    are the sebrights in a bird cage? Do you keep them inside, out or both?

    I favor sebrights, I have 10 of them that I bought at about 3 days old. They are now about a month and a half. I was going to sell them at this age but I am now thinking of keeping them to show them.

    Well, the experience I have had with that is that the sebrights are quite a bit more aggressive than the serama. The first sebright roo I had attacked me every time I went in the pen though I have to admit that the one I have now has not attacked me but he is young still, lol. My serama roo only bothered me when his hens were setting on egg and he was in a small pen, now that he is in the bigger pen (with more hens) he is fine.

    Im going to have to say Serama, but Im biased!

    Seramas are small, gentle and full of personality.

    Kelly just got a little Seabright roo to run around and add color to the flock. He lives with the quail. He is super cute, but I dont know about personality.....
    I love his color and the BLUE legs!

    I have owned several sebrights in the past and have just recently gotten seramas and i can easily say seramas hands down.Sebrights are beautiful, but seramas easily win out on personality
