Roosters are noisy, chickens rarely make much noise unless disturbed. My Barr Rocks rarely make a peep (very little disturbed them) my Easter Eggers are much more vocal (everything disturbs them) but even they are not really noisy enough to disturbed a neighbor (unless you have very sensitive neighbors)

I do not have any experience with those breeds. But like I said roosters are noisy, hens are pretty quiet.

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.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
