Breeds that don't sing the egg song while laying?

    I have read a few posts lately about the egg song bothering neighbors. I own a number of breeds, and the only type that has never made a lot of noise are my Giant Blue Cochins. They make "rusty screendoor hinge" noises, but that's all.

    Are all Cochins quiet like this?

    Are there other quiet breeds?

    Some of our easter eggers are also quiet layers, but some are downright noisy!

    Hey EE has been laying for a week, and she is quiet when she lays.
