    My DD has a black silkie hen. She (not my daughter) is sooooo quiet. Is this normal? Do the silkie roos make a lot of noise? She would like to get another silkie. Blackie just not seem to fit in with the other chickens which are all mutts.

    I do not want a rooster that crows! The neighbors may not like me too much!

    Hi Michele... I hate to say it, but all 3 of my roosters are LOUD. I have to keep them inside at night so they don't make too much noise. The hens ARE quiet, though. [​IMG]

    Bummer. Looks like I will need to find another silkie female room-mate! I guess I will need to get some more of your eggs!

    It depends on the roo, some are naturally quiet, others can be very loud.

    I have one hen that is a squawker, and one that's nearly silent. I think it just depends on the personality of the chicken.

    Tori,
    You are one "evil" woman! I will try to get some eggs from you. First I have to try to find another incubator! Maybe I can borrow one! The buttons are in mine, thanks to your extreme kindness. I also want to get more of your Coturnix quail. I just love them. They are so sweet.

    Bwahahahahahaha!!!! [​IMG]

    Seriously, I'm up to 9 eggs, and I CANNOT hatch any more silkies this year. I have Millies and Light Brahmas saved up to go in tomorrow, then THAT's it. I guess I'll have to start eating more of my own eggs... [​IMG]
