i got some silent once a few weeks ago and they were small ones, so obviously baby ones and never heard them as i kept them in my bedroom
yeah, only the adults sing. They do it by rubbing their legs on their wing cases, so no wings = no singing
I have to admit I stick the cricket tub in the fridge for 20 minutes before opening it to get any out. it slows them down and makes them much easier to deal with.
