    Is there a breed of chickens where the males are quite?

    They all crow. Some have softer voices than others.
    I don't think they crow as much by the time they reach 2 or 3 years of age.

    Roosters are quieter than barking dogs, lawn mowers, weed eaters, trains, roofers, boom boxes, etc..

    City ordinance doesn't allow roosters in my area but they sure allow trains!

    I understand the city thing because people don't get it. I'd rather wake to a rooster than a screaming alarm clock.

    Sitting here at my computer at 4AM, I can hear the train whistle 4 miles away but at 6AM I can't hear the roosters in my own backyard.
