So I have two D'uccle bantam hens and they have recently decided to be incredibly loud! One of them has started crowing every day, and they both squawk constantly. It's actually more like a scream! It's ear piercing, definitely not an "egg song." I live in the city, and it's not technically legal for me to have them, and while my neighbors know about them, I obviously can't allow them to run around screaming at the top of their lungs all day. They are definitely both hens, I have seen them both lay eggs. They basically get free range of the yard though recently I've been having to bring them inside because they're so loud I know it's disturbing to my neighbors. Does anyone have any ideas how to stop this behavior? I don't want to get rid of them, I love them dearly!
