I am planning a backyard flock and haven't chosen exactly which breeds I am getting, but I am leaning toward the following for the characteristics I need for my suburban set-up. (Hens only) Barred Rocks, Dominiques, and Buckeyes. However, I just read on some other chicken site that Buckeyes are noisy, which is something I am trying to avoid so that neighbors don't have a reason to complain. Anyway, they didn't say whether it was a rooster quality specifically or a breed quality in general. I would like to have a Buckeye, but not if it is a noisy breed. From what I've read the Rocks and Dominiques are relatively quiet. Does anyone have any experience with Buckeye hens to advise? Thanks in advance for any helpful advice. Much appreciated.
