Hello Everyone! It's been awhile since I've been on the forum, I hope everyone had a nice new year. My husband and I moved into a slightly larger house this fall (bigger than our 500 sq ft cabin) that is within city limits. We had to give our EEs to a friend on a ranch at the time. now new city rules will allow us to have hobby chickens! We are so excited to have chickens again! What I would like to know if anyone has an opinions on wether some breeds are quieter than others? I don't want to drive my neighbors crazy. About 1/2 of our EEs were quiet and the other 1/2 were so loud I though for sure I had roos on my hands. I should also mention that we live in Leadville Colorado and have long, cold, but sunny winters, so I need a cold hardy breed too. Thanks for the help and glad to be back!
