    OEs are very loud. They're very vocal and love to talk. They're very friendly but males can be a handful. I always say "they're aggressive but respectful." Not sure about Seramas... but I know most American strains are very highstrung.

    I have had both. Although I loved my OEGBs I would have to say my seramas are much quieter and friendlier.

    I have both, and both are equally loud. If anything, my little Serama roo is much more shrill than my OEBG boys.

    The shrillness really gets me, and my neighbor. [​IMG] I think the seramas can be variable, but the OEGB are pretty much the same ( all loud and shrill)

    I've not ever owned OEGB's, but I do have Seramas. From what I've heard of my Serama Roo, he is not as high pitched as some of the OEG's that I've heard at shows. However the tone of each rooster is subject to his genetic make up.

    My Seramas were rather flighty, and WIRED until they were a few months old. However with regular handling, they have calmed down QUITE a bit, and are actually quite pleasant to handle now.

    The other thing I like about Seramas is that you dont have to dub them to show them. I dont know that I could own OEGB's because they are supposed to be dubbed. Of course you dont have to do that if you're not showing, but you know me... I'm a showing fanatic.

    You don't have to dub a Serama for showing. That right there makes me like them more. [​IMG]
