    We have 5 chickens now & I would like to get 3 more this spring. Right now I got two BR, two RR & one Golden Buff.
    My BR are real noisy they make this whining sound or like a squawk sound. Sometimes it just goes on & on & now they got the RR to be noisy to. My golden buff is quiet but she did have a sister one time but she could be noisy to at times.

    I under stand they will do the chicken song but I'm ok with that. I would like to just find three hens that won't be so noisy & make that whining sound if possible. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    It's frequently an individual thing. My loudest birds are my Jersey Giant and Production Red. Some of my EE are quiet, but one is loud. My Silver Laced Wyandotte hens have probably been my most reliably "quiet" birds.
