Will button quail's crowing annoy the neighbors?

    How loud are these birds? I have a bunch of eggs coming next week. I cannot wait! They are so cute!

    Thanks, Michele

    Not very loud. I doubt the neighbors will hear them unless they are real close by and even then it doesn't seem to be constant crowing. My sister who spends time near their pen tells me they seem very quiet birds to her.

    From 40 feet away they blend in nicely with the wild birds. Hard to tell the difference unless your a bird watcher and can tell the calls apart.

    I agree-they are pretty quiet really, and don't crow constantly.

    Mine are very quiet. They are in the bottom of my parakeet aviary and I can say the parakeets are about 50x louder than the 10 button quail.

    They make cute little 'beeping' noises mostly - it's constant but not loud at all. I can't imagine it would bother the neighbors unless you take a microphone and magnify the sound 100x and then put the speaker under their pillow or something.
