    LOUD Chickens

    Anyone know what's up with loud chickens? We have Polish ladies and they're obnoxiously loud during the day. I was losing my mind thinking they were possibly roosters at some point but, they're JUST loud. When I read about it, all there is info on is that it's a behavioral thing that means...

    Chick peeping loudly, help!

    My new SLW chick is sooo loud! She’s 2-3 days old now and has an Australorp friend who is near inaudible compared to her.
