    Hey its Brandon
    Ive been looking for a Roo to look after my flock, and to hatch chicks, but my neighbor doesn't like them, and i found out the hard way. I had A RIR, he was WAAAYYY to loud and had to go, my neighbor has chickens, we live in a rural area, but he wont accept a noisy Roo, and snubbed us until we got rid. So now, do you know of any quiet roos? I have got little bantam silkie chicks and bantam game chicks, what are they like? Any breeds would be appreciated, because I can go to a poultry auction.
    Thanks in advance

    I think a lot depends on the individual bird. I have had two silkie roos. One could have woken the dead he was so loud, and the one I have now I can barely hear, he just sounds like someone clearing their throat, lol. He does however like to let out a random crow at all hours of the night.
