    My Brahmas are probably the quietest girls I have. Here is my Caroline-people really love her color. My Lt. Brahma, Miranda, is also very quiet.

    Light and Buff are the easiest of the Brahmas to find. I have both Light and Dark Brahmas and both are very quiet. I'm hopeing next summer to be able to sell some Dark Brahma eggs. I'm just waiting for the roo to get older as he is only 4 months old. Here are some Pictures of my Dark Brahmas.

    Light brahmas or any kind of brahma for that matter would be good for you.
