    I have got a call duck flock and my neighbours are starting to Moan that they are noisy. I don't want to get rid of them so is there anything that I can try to make them quieter?!

    You can check with the duck-owning members on the duck forum. I don't know of a way to keep them quiet, but they may have some tips.

    Good luck, it's no fun to have disagreements with neighbors over animals.

    Hi :welcome

    G,ad you could join us here! I'm afraid I'm not a duck keeper but I see you have posted in the duck section. Hope the duck keepers there can offer you some advise on your ducks.

    Good luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    Nice to meet you Emily, hope you enjoy Backyard chickens as much as we do. I don't know ducks but I would imagine they are called "Call" ducks for being very vocal. I don't think you can stop the noise anymore than people can silence their roosters. Maybe you just need a different breed of duck, if that would be okay with you.
