    Can anyone answer? are Delawares typically noisy. I have a 5 month old Delaware pullet, NICE bird friendly etc. but she is 2x as loud if not louder than the rest of my girls! wondering if this is typical? or I just got one that likes to talk a lot! and loud.

    I can't answer specifically to Delawares but I have four Australorps and one of them is much noisier than the others. So, I'm thinking it's just the chickens personality as much as breeding.

    All of mine are quiet. One roo crows 3x per day, the other one maybe once. The girls are never loud.

    Mine aren't loud at all. The roos crow a couple times in the morning and I don't usually hear from them the rest of the day. The hens announce when they've laid an egg but aren't generally noisy any other time.

    My roo crows about 50 times in the morning... and I saw him "try" to mount a hen this afternoon.

    Will be dinner soon.
