Here is a Spangled Hatch cock that I have been using for breeding for over a year. He is a very attractive rooster (when he’s not in molt) that I have been using over my American Game Bantams. This guy is the quietest rooster I have produced, you don’t know he’s there if your back is turned to him. He is not aggressive but will peck when handled. I think the rooster would make a great gift for a country boy that is familiar with gamefowl that is now in a situation where a loud bird is not possible. I really like this bird and would still be using him but I’ve hatched a bunch out of him and am cutting back on chickens. This video is true to life, not edited.
This is a very attractive Brown leghorn cockerel that is very quiet. He would probably be a show candidate if he hadn’t lost the tips of his comb to the cold. His spurs have been permanently removed also. This rooster is healthy and should do well with your flock of hens. This breed is one of my favorite breeds. They are great layers of large white eggs while still being pretty feed efficient. They also are very good at taking care of themselves and hustling for food.
I’m not sure why this guy hasn’t been bought yet. I actually think I have him under priced. He is one of the best standard sized breeds that I have produced. I’ve been breeding him to a Silver Leghorn hen and he is very fertile since almost every egg out of him has hatched. Watch out next year for some of his golden sons.
Here is a young Barred Plymouth Rock rooster that is almost silent following the crow reduction surgery. You can stand with your back to him and not even know he is crowing. He would be great if you have close neighbors with a noise intolerance. I permanently removed his spurs while he was under anesthesia to spare the hen’s backs. He seems to be good with his pullets and has not shown any aggression toward me.
