    I would like to have ducks but I want a breed thats: flightless, not loud/noisey, lays well, not bigger then 9lbs, not aggresive, and docile. I know I'm asking alot from a bird but theres gotta be one out there thats what I want right lol

    I'd say Khaki Campbell. Call ducks fly.

    I know they're not as loud as calls. All ducks make some noise. Muscovies are quackless, they make a soft hissing sound.

    definetly campbells. They are greath layers, don't fly, and ---are kinda boring. Just like you want! [​IMG]

    Yeah my Khakis are quiet. Don't get runners if you want quiet, they are the noises thing you can get.
