They can get noisy at times with their bawk-bawk-bawk-bagack sessions. But it generally doesn't last very long. My five hens don't do that anymore but they do make a fuss early in the morning waiting to be let out of their run to free range. Only because they're waiting impatiently for me to drag my butt over and let them out. During 99% of the day they just make low, quiet bawba-wawba kind of sounds that you can't hear from 10 feet away.
From dusk to dawn, however, they are silent, silent, silent. And that's the most important time.
Hee, hee laughing at the bawk,bawking that's exactly what they sound like!!
I have a small flock (four red sexlinks) and the second in command (she's gotten bigger than my dominate hen and I think she's eyeing the position) always makes a lot a noise-sort of a bwak-bwak-bwak-bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaak-whenever anyone gets near the run. I personally believe that complaining loudly completes her because she seems to always be complaining. The other girls do make a bit of noise, but not as much as this one.
