    I have two Rhode Island Red hens who are fine layers but pretty noisy every day around laying time. I live in the city so keep a low profile. Are wyandottes and barred rocks quiet (like my buff orp.-- she never makes a sound) when they lay or more clucky like these RIRs?

    All my birds make noise when they lay an egg, my BO's included. However my Silver Spangled Hamburg is THE noisest bird!

    My wyandottes are much louder than my RIRs.
