    Honestly it sounds like my chickens are angry with me, or just don't like me. Everytime I go near the coop they always start, squaking at me I guess. Sounds like angry clucking, but it's not the egg song. Just listened to it on youtube.

    Is this something I can change, or will they always do this?
    I'll try and get a video to show what it sounds like.

    Chickens make all sorts of sounds. They are probably just asking for treats.
    I wouldn't worry unless they start coming at you with AK47's

    Mine will make a noise if they hear you but can't see you. Link a video!

    That is our ladies "demanding" voice. They want out, they want treats, they want SOMETHING and they start as soon as they hear me, see me or hear the horses nickering on my approach.

    I think it's kind of cute personally and take it to mean they like me. Maybe I'm just fooling myself into thinking my chickens like me. [​IMG] I don't think it's possible to change their behavior.

    Mine greet me too, but you should hear them call for my husband! They may be in lust with you, their human roo! [​IMG]
