my silkies are the quietest. The noisiest of my bunch are the cochin bantam rooster, and my black austrolorps make a ton of noise all day.

I have 6 silkie bantams, 11 cochin bantams, 1 mutt, 2 RIR, 2 black austrolorps, and 5 new baby easter eggers, 2 ducks, 2 goats, 2 rabbits and 2 doggies

only ever met one quiet chicken... it was a mute barnyard mutt rooster my cousin had growing up.... it was so funny when it tried to crow... for some reason, it never stopped trying...

That this universe, in all it's infinite wonder, simply is, that it exists at all, is good enough for me. In my eyes, to say that something had to "create" it, to make it what it is, only succeeds to cheapen the experience, to make it less special.

My silkies are extremely quiet...

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.

My BA is my loudest bird too!  And it's not her egg song - she's just a very loud conversationalist. hu

only one I ever saw... none of his offspring or their offspring were ever mute, so odds are it wasn't genetic...

Great topic, I have been asking this question alot these days because im looking at getting two more bird for my flock a coq and a hen; i have three right now, 2 sexlines and a sussex, and my sex line a super loud and talk evertime i come near, and if they think it is time for a little tour in the garden they dont shut up; but i hardly ever hear anythin out of my sussex, even after she has layed an egg.... nothing. but i have heard alot here in france that the Pekin, is a quieter breed but the breed the most calm and quiet is the Ardennaise. like a gauloise dorée but a bit smaller. but i have no proof of that...........YET!

6 sablepoot porceline, 2 sex-links, 1 coucou de renne,  sussex, faverolle,  gris cendré, 5 crazy quail,  moulard and canard de barbary; 2 rouens, a goldern retriever; and a lovely wife who secertly love them all more then i do, eventhough she says they are there just for the egg production!

I don't think much can beat gamefowl. Both American Gamefowl and Oriental Gamefowl (Asils, Thai, Shamos, etc) are very quiet in that even the hens do NOT make the "egg song." Roosters, at least with Oriental Gamefowl, don't crow that much, and both genders aren't too much of loud talkers.


The big thing though is the fact that they don't make the normal daily egg call.
