Do they get more talkative just before they start laying? I have 2 buff brahma pullets that were hatched May !0th. One of them is WAY louder than she used to be and her comb is getting redder lately too. She's always been a bit more chatty than the other. But I can hear her at the house now. lol
Ohyes. I remember when my Araucanas were getting close to laying - I thought there was a goose in the yard!
