    Hi everyone
    I am looking at duck breeds and I am looking for a breed that is quiet or as quite as a duck can be. I know that Muscovy ducks are the quite but I was wondering if there is another breed that is quiet. (I have neighbors that are close to the house)
    Can Muscovy females quack?

    From what I know of Muscovies is that the females hiss but dont quack so that might be a good breed for you. I started reading Story's Guide to Ducks and it has a lot of good info in it.

    Scovies are the quiet ones. Most other breeds can be quiet but get load at times.

    My anconas are my quitest breed. my hen is sooooo quite,only quacks for food.

    My welsh harlequins are kinda quite to. They only quack when they see me coming with the food buket.... And they are better layers then most breeds.....

    My khaki campbell was the quietest for me. She barely ever made noise.
