Of all the breeds of ducks I have had, the blue Swedish are the most quiet. Very seldum will they make any noise. The only time you will hear them complain is like ,,say.. a possium is after them and they will let you know about it.

About Your question of quiet ducks and gamebirds. I know muscovy ducks do not quack but make a hissing noise when scared. As for game birds I have raised pharo(aka)egyptian quail and they are very quiet and mature at 6 weeks old and start to lay at 8 weeks.Also most of the pheasants are fairly quiet also .Hope this was some help.carla
