are the loud
I have four runners. Three girls one boy. The girls can get pretty loud.
Yes, indeed. Loud as ducklings and loud as adults.
Louder than I expected. Ling ling is LOUD, or rather can be loud. She's my uber co-dependent duck. If she is alone... whoo the quacking.
Shadow my female black runner is VERY loud. When I call her name she gets even louder lol. She lays nice big eggs and has been broody, so I know she will hatch some babies and be a good mommy
My runner is actually pretty quiet...but she is just weird in general, so don't use her as an indicator of anything
Ours are real quiet compared to the calls and the geese....
are they louder than a rooster crowing and how often do they lay i just ordered 10 of them
My drake is barely audible. My female can be a little loud but she doesn't quack a lot and she's not as loud as the mallards and rouen.
As for eggs, mine haven't hit laying age yet so I'm curious about that answer too!
I guess you're about to find out!
They are not louder than a rooster crowing. And truly, people really don't mind ducks like they do roosters. I think it's silly for folks in a city--with all the road noise, plane noise, people noise, music blaring, lawnmowers roaring, dogs barking, etc.--to complain about roosters either, but for some reason, folks just seem to *like* ducks. Most folks find the sound soothing--after all, a duck is something you go to a nice, quiet park to view.
So you'll probably be fine.
