  1. i need a quiet bantam that i can get from MPC. i need them, so the neghboors don't hear them. chickens are illegle in my neighboorhood! [​IMG] but they are allowed as pets, but i still don't want to get on my neiboor's neavers, so they'll force me to get rid of them.

    My buff jap hens are very quiet, but my roo has some competition from other roos, so he's very vocal.

    My Jap and D'uccle roos are very vocal. The cochin is fairly quiet but I don't think you could hide him from the neighbors.
