    Just moved to the big city 6 months ago. Hate it here but that is another story. I kept chickens as a child but never really knew much about it. After much though and consideration I have decided to start a small flock and that is what has brought me here. If anyone has any suggestions for a small quiet chicken Im up for suggestions.

    [​IMG] Welcome from Oregon, which is in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! I was born and raised in NYC and moved here 30 years ago. I love to visit the NYC and do every year or so but always need to get back to Oregon after a week--I need the breathing space!! We're getting our fist chicks the end of April so no real experience. I have read Delawares are fairly quiet though and great birds. Enjoy having chicks in the city! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Well, how quiet are parrots, budgies, canaries, or any other "normal" house bird? Just don't get a rooster. I'd probably recommend a Silkie.

    [​IMG] from Indiana! My Standard Blue Cochin hens are the quietest birds we have. They're very laid back and sweet.

    [​IMG] from NC. My two bantam d'Uccles are pretty quiet, for chickens, but they do sing the egg song when they lay!
