Hello! New to the forum and city chicken keeping, but an old dog to country flocks. We just bought a house in a track neighborhood with an HOA. However, our home backs right up to a HUGE farm that has sheep, goats, ponies, ducks, geese and chickens. Our lot is also 10,000sf, with the majority of land running between the houses on either side of us. Phoenix, AZ allows chickens, but I'm sure our HOA does not...I'm not even going to ask. In my experience some breeds seem louder than others. If my memory serves me well, my French Faverolles, Blue Laced Red Wyandottes and Speckled Sussex were quiet, while my Barred Rocks, RI Reds and Buff Orpingtons were loud. What's your experience been?
