How QUIET are Bielefelder hens and female chicks? Compared to other backyard layer and dual breeds?
We're getting set up for our first chickens, for eggs and fun companions. Live on 1/3 acre in a SoCal suburb. Zoned for hens but not roosters. Bielefelders are so pretty and we like their auto-sexing feature.
If you have quiet Bielefelders, where did you buy them?
Thanks so much,
Mine are very quiet overall. greenfire directly
At 7 months they are laying!
And avg of 4 eggs a day with 5 hens
I love how well they lay. I am super excited about these birds! can't wait to have a big flock of them.
Mine are only 2 weeks old. I hatched them myself and have been amazed by how quiet they are compared to the other breeds I've raised. I keep my hatchlings in the house until they start perching on the edge of the brooder around 3 weeks and I almost forget sometimes that they're here. When they're in any kind of distress, they can be as loud as any other distressed chick, but the rest of the time their little chirps are almost soothing to hear when I focus on hearing them. I'm curious to see if this tendency persists as they age.
My chicks are almost 2 weeks old. I live in San diego and know two local breeders. Let me know if you want contact info.
I recommend this breed! They are super sturdy chicks, are fast growing and easy going. You are going to love having chickens!
My Bielefelders are the quietest breed I've ever had. I have adults and sell hatching eggs on eBay. So I have adults, juveniles, and babies. Overall, they are quieter at all ages than other breeds I've had.
