    I have had these beauties for 11 days not. They seem very happy, they just are very quiet, some burp burp burping, and one sessex cooing like she may lay. the only cluck fest happened when your RIR found the little grass snake and they all wanted it.

    Are quiet hens and a rooster that does not crow normal?

    Hmmm are you sure it's a rooster?! I know that some breeds roosters are different then others. If they're acting ok, healthy and happy I wouldn't be worried I guess!
