Hi BYC, I am looking forward to getting my first chickens next spring and trying to settle on a breed. I'd like to at least TRY to have a rooster - my area, while not remote, is relatively ag-friendly and there are no legal issues with the presence of a roo. I was leaning towards getting Wyandottes, but ran across some archived discussions online where people who had had several breeds were discussing the fact that the Wyandotte roosters were exceptionally high in volume. However, this is the only mention of such a phenomenon I've run across yet. I know much will depend upon the individual bird(s) I end up with, but if the breed is in fact known for being high decibel, I think I'd like to direct my energy elsewhere. So, to those who have been around a variety of roo's...are the Wyandottes particularly loud or did I just run across some people who had ended up with a few outlier Wyandottes? Thank you!
