    I have eleven white leghorns, and one chicken that bawk-bawks,loudly everytime one goes in to lay an egg and while they are laying it. They have even been sitting three in a nest. They have four nests to choose from and they use the same one, or lay it on the floor. Just glad to get 'em

    I really think the standard cochins are quietiest. I was in the coop yesterday and three of them were on the nests and layed their eggs no sound at all.

    My black orps are very quiet and placid.
