Stressed chicken crowing constantly and at night

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello

We have introduced three 20 week old chickens to our two older ladies but the dominant chicken has now been crowing for over 10 hours. It is now nighttime and she continues to crow in the hen house in the dark. I have needed to bring her into the house, just so our neighbours can get some sleep. I am not sure who is now more stressed me or the chicken. How can I stop this happening. Any ideas.?Thank you

Are you sure SHE is crowing?  Any chance you have a rooster there?

 

Is it still crowing, even in the house?  Or is it fine now that it has been removed from the other chickens?

 

If it continues to make noise, and it is a hen, are you sure it is not egg bound or experiencing some other sort of health issue?

Are you sure she isn't a rooster    If you would put up some good photos of her, we can answer that question.  Is she really crowing, or in pain or frightened?  Hens do not crow constantly or at night.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Welcome to BYC!

 

That does seem unusual for your bird to crow all night long, a photo might help us to see if she is a "she". It sounds as though you weren't having this issue before you added the new chicks? How large is your coop?
