    The only quite ones I have are Sussex and Delaware. The Sussex are very quiet. You may never find a chicken quiet enough for your neighbors, and even quite breeds have some loud mouths.

    Brahmas are pretty quite!
    you don't even hear the males very often!

    They don't lay as well as BR though!
    an average adult Brahma lays 4 eggs a week
    (some more or less depending on overall health!)

    They are great foregors & kid freindly personalities!
