I have a Buff Orpington. She is very docile and doesn't make much noise at all. I have a Brown Leg Horn and a Blue Andalusian that squawk up a storm, especially after laying an egg.
You can get an odd one in a bunch that deviates from the breed norms, but for the most part, the breeds mentioned are all quiet and calm. Sounds like your narrowing things down and on the right track.

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run.
