With where I live, I can't have an excessive amount of noise. My Welsummer cross started making this noise when someone was trying to lay/are laying/after she has laid and then just because she wants to. She doesn't do this regularly but when she does do it she does it all throughout the day and she used to stop after a couple of bawks, or stop when told to but now she just carries on to the point I have to run out. She causes me a lot of stress as I'm scared about what the neighbours would think or do about her noisy day. She used to be so quiet.
I've read other forums to do with this issue, but I didn't find any helpful as most just said "Give the neighbours some eggs", "chicken's aren't quiet", "it's a nice song that they do and it's a good thing". Stuff like that, I live in the middle of other houses surrounding mine, I know chicken's aren't quiet and I don't expect them to be. My others tell us once in the morning that they want something and then they just lay down relaxing or pecking around throughout the day. Luckily she doesn't make this noise occasionally but as I've said, that one day that she does it she decides to do it all day for no reason.
I'm worried that I'll have to rehome her, I love her to bits but i have to go to work or go somewhere most days so her doing this whenever she feels like it is just upsetting of what could happen to her.
I've tried a crow collar to quieten it down as I've been told that they can help. I've tried covering them up, I've tried removing her from the others as like a time out. I've tried distracting her with food or other things. Theres got to be a way to quieten her down or at least cut the noise down when she does do it.
