My husband and I have decided to raise a small clan of chickens Our coop comes tomorrow (getting a chicken ARK) and we're picking up chickens this week! Where we are chickens are unlawful. We are JUST within city limits (our property backs up to out of city limits). Our neighbors already said they don't have a problem with hens (we wouldn't get a rooster anyway) so that part is squared away. I've spoken with a breeder of BLR and Marans. I was thinking 2 of each, or maybe 1 of each and an Ameracauna? We need breeds that are known to be fairly quiet. I know that personalities vary, but trying to stack the deck in our favor. Is there another breed you might suggest?
