    if a fox gets through my 6ft fence past my terriers and into the secure run i will be suprised.
    could you not build a secure run?

    I don't think ours are noisy, a bit of clucking but def not noisy. Just make sure you only have girls!

    We have four we have had about five weeks and they are really quiet, no trouble at all with noise (escaping into next doors garden, not so good, sorted with a wing clipping session though) the only time they do make noise is when I give them their daily treat of mixed corn, as soon as they see me bringing it out they rush me all gabbling away as they love it. They are really friendly now and quite entertaining to watch especially when one grabs a worm and the others are chasing it benny hill style around the garden, they also follow me all round the garden, into the shed and even try following into the house.

    The Mrs really wants some silkies and keeps pestering.
