    My four hens sound more like crows than any chickens i've ever heard (2 Barred Rock/2 Delaware) Does anyone have audio of various chicken sounds and their meanings?
    They just always sound really irritated and it is loud! I want to be sure i'm not missing something.

    I am fascinated by their sounds. Half the time the rooster sounds more like a cat. And the hens bark. Very strange little animals. Any resources on chicken communication would be awesome!
