While I wish there were roos that were quiet, I know it isn't the case. So...explain this to me please (someone?...anyone?). Some breeds are described as quiet breeds (for example Delawares according to My Pet Chicken). Does this apply to hens only or are the roos "quieter" than other breeds? Does it mean they aren't as loud decibel-wise or just not as often? It is more of a curiosity question really .... I just don't understand what "quiet" means for a chicken. My hens are fairly quiet (except one Barred Rock hen who talks A LOT) and roos, in general, are NOT quiet.
