Hi everyone, I'm fairly new to chicken keeping (got my first chicks in June of '11) and I recently had to rehome my RIR and Silver Lakenvelder because they made tons of noise, especially early in the morning. I hated to do this as I loved the chickens very much, but I live in the city with neighbors on both sides and behind me, so I can't have chickens screaming at 6 am. I didn't realize they were so loud! I'm down to a Barred Rock and a White Crested Blue Polish. The Barred Rock is very noisy after laying, but the polish never seems to make a peep - just a weird growling/moaning sound that is quite tolerable. It's the egg song that drives some of my neighbors crazy. I can't seem to find much info online about this, so I was wondering if anyone has experience with Polish Hens? Do none of them sing the egg song (please oh please! lol) or is it just mine? I'd love to get a few more chickens, but I don't want to have to rehome them again if they become too noisy (it was so sad! i miss them), so I was wondering if the Polish Hens are quieter than the rest. If they are, they are the chicken for me! Thanks for any info.
