Are turkeys noisy?
Any more so than any other fowl?
I currently have 4 RI Red hens and 4 Rouen ducks. Neither the chickens nor the ducks are very noisy at all. The "egg song" from the girls when they lay, or course. The ducks mostly do their little quacks quietly to each other, unless their is some problem, which is rare, and they all, of course, "talk" to me when I'm around.
I have 2.2 acres, but I'm in the 'burbs, and I don't want to be a bad neighbor. I would like to keep a couple of turkeys, since they, above all, really fascinate me, but I don't want to be inconsiderate and get something that will wake up the whole neighborhood, that sort of thing (which is why I have no roosters, only hens). And, I would definitely want a Tom, since they are the pretty ones.
If not turkeys, my other choice I'm considering is the opposite extreme in size -- quail of some type. I am sure they are pretty quiet.
Any thoughts on the matter?
