Why do my chickens make so much noise?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

We have three buff orpington hens and I can't figure out why they make so much noise!  I can't tell if something sets them off or it's just the way they are.  No one is complaining in the neighborhood.  I'm just concerned they are needing something that I am not figuring out.  Obviously, we are new to chickens.  Any advice would be great.  Thanks!

What kind of noises are they making?   Do they sound like they are 'chatting'?  Scared/Spooked?   We need more info please!

Oh, and welcome-byc

The girls are 1 1/2 years old and the noises are more bawk bawk and cackling.  They seem like regular chicken nosies, not scared just chatty.  They just seem to make a lot of it!  Thanks.
