There is no such thing as a quiet chicken, and most definitely no such thing as a quiet rooster.... chickens make a lot of noises to communicate, especially when laying eggs. And roosters crow all day long to make sure everyone on the general vicinity knows that’s his territory and his females.So I live in the suburbs and I want a quiet chicken. What is a good quiet chicken do you guys recommend? Also I want a rooster that would be quiet but also protect the flock. Again what breed do you guys recommend?
I’ve had several bantam roosters and they were all super loud... crowed constantlyWhat do you want the chickens for? Do you want them for meat, eggs, both, or just for pets?
No rooster is quiet, unless you get a bantam. But, a bantam won't be able to protect the flock. He can watch for dangers and alert the hens if he sees a predator, but he can't fight off a hawk, fox, raccoon, etc. If alerting is enough for you, then get some kind of bantam. If not, then you will have to get some other breed that will be loud.
