Hi everyone! I have a flock of 7 hens and I'm planning on possibly getting more chicks soon, and I was curious if anyone knows about any type of fowl that can protect my flock like a rooster would, but doesn't make a lot of noise. I live in a neighborhood and I've looked everywhere online to see if roosters are legal/illegal and I haven't seen anything against having one, but I don't know if my neighbors would be able to tolerate the noise. (I hope they'd be fine because everyone goes to work or school during the day anyway and I don't think it's common for roosters to crow at night away...). If someone could just let me know, that'd be great. I let my hens out in the yard a lot but I can't constantly watch them and is just like to have some type of fowl to keep the together and safe.
