Quiet Chicken Breeds

No breed of chicken is entirely quiet, but there are several that make hardly any audible fuss at all. This only applies to the hens, though - cockerels will always crow, no matter what breed you have.

The more docile breeds are the quietest ones. Bantams tend to match their smaller size with smaller voices.
