    they'll be a year old in two days, and I dunno if it's because of their birthday excitement or what but they seem to have gotten really loud in the AM recently. Different sounds than I'm used to, and much louder...

    listen here:

    any ideas? is there a solution to this other than a cracker?

    sounds like an egg song to me. Just the girls announcing that they just laid the world's most awesome egg. :) Yeah, they can be really loud

    My ladies are loud in the morning too. Squawking and carrying on. It usually lasts about an hour. They all seem to lay about the same time. Isnt that strange? I wonder if its like the theory about women who are together alot having their monthly visitor at the same time?

    they've made noise, but this is pretty intense. The first few times i heard it i thought they were in trouble and went running out expecting the worst. they just looked at me like "wat".
