    Are they fairly quiet?

    Remeber that not all BSLs are the same cross of breeds [​IMG] With a hybrid they don't breed true, and even within established breeds it's still a really individual thing.

    Mine are Buff Orpington x Barred Rock, and they are quieter than my Leghorns and my pure Buff Orps. I really like them!

    I have four black sex links and they are not to bad with noise. Out of my laying flock they are one of the quieter groups.

    You guys with quiet BSLs are lucky! Pork Chop, my BSL, is a noise-machine. She hasn't started clucking or making adult chicken sounds quite yet, but she does a lot of shrieking. At first I thought she was agitated, but now I think she just likes the sound of her own voice. She's a total sweetie, though, so I don't mind so much [​IMG]

    Mine don't make any more noise than any of my other birds.
