I'd say is you get 3 silkies they should be fairly quiet my cochin just follows people squawking ALL DAY LONG. my silkies are pretty quiet and with proper care and a good coop, the smell is not bad there is also a few sprays to help with the smell that works pretty good. my favorite of the ones I have tried is ANOTEC ODOR CONTROL because it is all natural and is very effective. good luck!!! the eggs alone are worth it, they are just so much better for you and tastier. make sure your neighbors are ok with a little extra noise in the mornings (again not a whole lot) and if they are on the fence offer them some fresh eggs every once in a while.

  • Wild animals stalking my animals?

    Best answer: Poultry are sitting ducks (so to speak) for lots of wild animals. Where I live it's coyotes and foxes. Anyone who doesn't keep their chickens in a secure coop is not a chicken owner very long. Your "cat" may have been a feral cat, or possibly a large weasel known as a fisher.

    They're sometimes called fisher cats because they move like cats.
    That's only a possibility if you live pretty far north though.

  • What are the biggest cons of owning backyard hens? And how to convince my dad to let me get chickens?

    Hi, I'm 16 and I'm trying to convince my dad to let me get some hens. I've done my research and pretty much know everything I need to know, but he's worried about the noise and smell of hens. From what I've heard, hens really aren't very noisy unless laying eggs, it's just the roosters that are loud. I'm hoping to get silkies and buff Orpingtons which I've heard are some of the friendliest and quietest breeds. I'd only get 3 or 4 hens and I know where I can get them, I just need his approval. I also think it's important to note that I purely want chickens as pets. I'm already vegan so I really don't care about the eggs, but it's a nice bonus. I have all the information, and money for the supplies. My dad knows I'm responsible because I already have my own cat and snake, and I have a job so I will be able to pay for everything. He thinks chickens are good idea because he'd like me to eat eggs (although I couldn't care less) he just needs to know they won't be too loud. How can I convince him?

  • Is there ANYWAY POSSIBLE that you can fertilize a freshly laid infertile chicken egg?

    Best answer: Theoretically, yes.You would have to puncture the shell and inject sperm from the rooster, then seal up the puncture. It's much easier to do it the old fashioned way - - and a lot more fun for the rooster.

  • Help! Hen laying strange eggs?!?

    Best answer: Double yolk eggs just means it would have been twin chicks if it were fertilized by a male, it's rare but normal. Hens naturally try to lay eggs until they can lay a 'clutch', which I would say is around a dozen eggs. Think about birds nests, they never have just one egg at a time.

    Best answer: Double yolk eggs just means it would have been twin chicks if it were fertilized by a male, it's rare but normal. Hens naturally try to lay eggs until they can lay a 'clutch', which I would say is around a dozen eggs. Think about birds nests, they never have just one egg at a time. Birds naturally try to lay more eggs after laying their first one. The reason is because they don't know which of their eggs was fertilized so they try to lay all the developed yokes that they're carrying. The soft shells may or may not indicate that the hen wasn't nourished enough to make that many hard shells so quickly.

  • Does PetSmart let you see/hold the parakeets?

Just to see if you’d like that specific bird or to help you decide whether you want a parakeet or not? I know my PetSmart lets you go into this side room to play with the cats and see if you’d like to adopt them, so I didn’t know if they did the same for the parakeets. Thanks in advance 💕

  • What should I do with a bird that is sitting still on a wall even when approached?

    Outside my work there is a small bird just sitting on a wall looking as if it is sleeping. It doesn’t even move when approached unless there is a loud noise. It’s not in a very dangerous place and is out of the way of most people. Should i do something?
