    Hi I was wondering if anyone out there could let me know what the quietest pheasant are to raise. When I say quiet, I mean which breeds out there aren't going to not piss off my neighbors when it comes breeding season and the males start crowing. I've hear reeves are quiet, but the males are agressive? I've had chicken roosters that I've had to get rid of because they were to loud, is there any pheasant breeds out there that I could keep without the annoying super loud crowing. I'm in seattle by the way.

    My trio of red gold pheasants aren't that loud. They talk alot, but it's kinda like they are mumbling to themselves. I was surprised that they sound alot more like a wild bird than a chicken.

    My red goldens, and lady amherst call back and forth all spring, and its an all day thing. I would have to say my elliot's are quite, my temmincks tragopan are also quite.

    I was wondering about this also, I don't want to make my neighbors angry.

    I'd like to know on a scale of:

    -a chicken rooster being the loudest

    -wild birds such as robins and sparrows being the quietest

    where pheasant cock calls are rated?

    I have a chance to buy some red golden and ringneck chicks and wanted to know how loud and how often their calls are going to be.
    Thanks!

    My stupid ringnecks crow all year round and my neighbors all know I have them. The red goldens only crow in the spring and I can hear it inside the house but after you get a couple house down the road you cant hear it anymore.

    Found this on youtube:



    at around 20 seconds the golden starts a shreecking noise then a whistle. I am guesing this is its breeding call?

    This sounds lower volume then the chicken rooster we had to get rid of, so if this is only a couple months of the year I may be trying some golden pheasants soon!

    my impeyans are fairly quite at least compared to my chickens, goldens, blue-eared, and amhersts. The amhersts aren't bad either really kinda quiet.
