Do chickens bark? I have a young hen about 6 months old and she began barking just before she started laying. She is the youngest in my flock of 4 and appears the most dominant although the other chickens anen't worried by it and ignore her. She is other wise well eats a varied diet and lays beautiful eggs. We have a dog but the dog rarely barks! The hen can hear neighbours dogs barking occasionally.Is this normal behaviour?

They sound like what they hear often. My first set was raised near ducks so the quack and honk often. I have a rescue that heard growling all the time so she growls when she talks to me. I have a set that were raised near a quail pen and one of the girls egg songs sounds like a quail roosters crow. All of these sets range with chickens that sound like normal chickens but they haven't changed their noises. It's nothing to worry about.
