At the risk of turning the backyard into a much more urban farm than my neighbors would like... I'm thinking about ducks in addition to my chickens. My house is on a fifth of an acre so I don't want to be too loud. The one that's been most recommended to me in terms of volume is the muscovy, but from what I've read, they are only moderate layers. The other breed I'm considering is of course the Khaki Campbell. I would prefer the Campbell due to the increased laying and the fact that they are about a million times better to look at, but I'm concerned about the volume of the females, can anyone here give me an idea of how loud they are? I'd be getting either 3 girls or 3 girls + 1 drake. My point of reference for volume is my RIR that makes a ruckus whenever other hens are laying. Will they be that loud? louder? ... and are they loud all the time, or is it just every once in awhile?
