I'm in a rural area but in town so I have a couple fairly close neighbors. One won't care about rooster racket but the other likely will be bothered. They are not "right next door", like over-the-fence in an urban area. But our coop would be about 200 ft feet from their house. They are friendly, good neighbors but too friendly to actually say if something is really bothering them. This is our first flock in the spring and I'm wondering if I should even consider a rooster or not. Are bantam roosters any noticeably more quiet than standards because of their anatomically smaller size? We have a friend in-state that thinks in a month or two she might have a couple standard legbars (no worry of roos there), a couple maran mix-breed dark egg layers, and a couple cochin bantams, possibly a faverolle bantam. So that's what we have coming straight run, that might have a roo appear. There's another breeder with Ameraucana and Welsummer so a roo might come up in a straight run there. I'm just getting a few of each.I just would consider keeping a roo that might show up in the straight run chicks we have coming this spring. Are any breeds particularly more likely to be better for our situation than others or is that just a toss up? Wyandottes bantams are one we thought about. Old English bantams are beautiful, we are drawn to the less common but I've heard even their bantams are pretty intense. As a side question, so I avoid Old English pullets, too, as a beginner looking for a friendly, backyard flock? Thank you!
