People have said that Silkie roosters are sort of quiet (and nice), some of them anyhow. I have some pullets who are getting to be real honkers. I am just wondering if I could get away with a Silkie rooster with my coop that is about 40' from my neighbor's houses? My grown up hens may be too noisy come summer, but I hope not! My neighbors have kids who run around and yell a lot (playing), so that's our quid pro quo. Edit punctuation. Corrected pullets vs. hens.
