They are quite nice chooks most of the day, but often around dawn, expecially in summer they are very very noisy. It wakes us up and we sleep at the far end of the house. The neighbours have never complained fortunately.... Anyway, when these hens stop laying and we need new layers we would like to get QUIETER chickens, if such a thing is possible. Can anybody recommend some quiet chicken breeds? We'd prefer specialist egg layers as we don't plan on eating our friends and pretty chickens would be a bonus.
Or, can people tell me about noisy chicken breeds to avoid?
