yes.. this is my first time raising chickens. My family brought them home on 4/3/2016.   After 1 week or so, I learned a lot of things that i didn't know back then.

 

I heard of them being loud after laying an egg.. but we have to see .. since i live in the city with neighbors  only 30-40 ft away + their dogs

 

Well, it's not just when they lay an egg, but after they are old enough to lay...

.....they can go on for what seems like hours just a jabberin, a squawkin, a moanin, and a groanin about who knows what.

It can be very funny, until it gets annoying as all get out.

 

Apologies to the OP for hijacking their thread.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

No amount of talking does any good with these folks. So if I got crazy ***** LOUD birds, so be it.

 

depends on your area

 

just check the city laws

 

they should have a noise ordinance in place

 

for example around here..  barking dog will be handled by the police. The police will check on the house being reported and ask if they can stop their dogs from barking.

 

continuously making noises at ANY TIME (unless you have a permit- like builders or contractors working on some projects) is illegal around here

 

after multiple reports and repeated occurrences ... the neighbors can sign off on it and animal control will take the animal away if the owner refused to do anything.

 

there's also smell ordinance. .which is why i clean out my coop/run each day to control the smell

There are ordinances here and I've scoped them out.
I'm joking, for the most part.
I'm hoping all goes well and my family and I can enjoy our birds without any nonsense.

Placement reconsidered.
Thanks for the reply.

 

for now i'll just cover up those areas for them each night but i have to find something to cover those areas (blocking the light but not the ventilation)

 

in the arizona heat you need as much ventilation as you can in 100-120 degree heat..
