    Buff suddenly screaming

    One of our Buff Orpingtons has started screaming throughout the day. It has been going on for a week. She is walking around the run, not acting broody by staying in a nesting box. Every few minutes she will just give out one loud yell. We have ten chickens and none has acted like this before...

    Good advice. Thank you. I think I'll go with the a little distance from the house.

    Coop right against house?

    Does anyone have a coop that is right up against their house? We are going to get 6 chicks in a couple of months and am planning the coop and run. I have an area outside of our finished basement where we could put the coop and run. That way we could watch the chickens from the windows in the...
