Quote:Unfortunately, all roosters crow. Some more than others, but they all do it. Quiet isn't really in their vocabulary.
If you want chicks, you could purchase sex link chicks and have better chances of getting all girls. Sex links are chickens that are usually (there's ALWAYS exceptions, but your chances are good) identifiable at birth by their markings whether they will be boy or girl. IF you ended up with a rooster, you could cull it, or try to find a new home for it.
