    If upsetting the neighbors could be a problem, then getting a rooster is not advisable. You don't need a rooster for your hens to lay eggs.

    Even a quiet rooster goes off at 2am, 4am, 6am, 8am, 10am, 12 noon and so on... (these are estimate times, your times may vary)

    **I don't know of any specific breeds that are quieter than others. Maybe some other member could give a recommendation.**

    There are days when I never hear a peep out of my rooster. Then there are days like today where every five minutes he was spouting off about something and just in case I didn't hear him well enough he spent an hour this afternoon standing at the back door crowing. He's a booger and I love him.
