    Hi I really quiet chicks because I have a very strict association. Which would you say is quieter New Hampshire Red vs.Barred Plymouth Rock. Any other suggestions would be great to. Thanks so much. Really need some help on this.

    I've never had New Hampshire Reds, but I've had Rhode Island Reds, which are similar. A friend of mine has a Barred Rock. In my experience (not a lot, as I don't actually have the Barred Rock), Rhode Island Reds are pretty noisy. The Barred Rock is quieter.

    I know you didn't list this one, but I think Brahmas are some of the quietest Large Fowl. They are very calm.

    I personally have had a great experience with ameracanas, hen wise, they are pretty quiet, mine barely ever make noise. For a rooster, silkies are some of the quietest roosters out there. Mine had a very soft crow, couldn't hear him indoors when he was 20 feet from it. Hope this helps!
