I have had my girls for 3 years. Recently my bossy hen passed away. Everyone was mellow until a couple days ago. I'm up at 5:30 and even before the sun rose I hear the most gawd awful sound, enough to wake the dead! I looked at my husband and said what the heck was that?!! Again this raspy obnoxious crow and I realize it's coming from my coop! 5 of the girls are awake and on the ground ready to start the day. I can't tell who's making noise but it's bad!! Has anyone had a hen that has started crowing in the morning? I live in the county where chickens are allowed but not roosters. I've never had roosters and there are none within earshot of us. What do I do? How can I stop this?
