I have 3 chickens and they all make the weirdest noises. I had no idea they would/could make so many sounds. My NH red, Sugar, is probably the quietest until the dog runs past and then we get the panic 'bok bok bok' really quickly as they flutter outta the way. Otherwise, she only makes little soft chattering noises when she sees treats. She is so quiet, I'll nearly step on her if I'm in the garden, she's so underfoot and into everything. My SL wyandotte, Oreo, makes so many different sounds. Like an 'ah-ah-ah' sound in her throat with a growl and several short throaty growls. She doesn't usually open her mouth to make sounds. My GL wyandotte, Cookie, is the biggest weirdo. She does the 'BOK BOK B"GOK!!' all the time, in the bushes, when she finishes laying, if something/someone interrupts her laying and for about 5 minutes after she lays. She is LOUD and she doesn't pause with the sounds it goes more like BOKBOKBGOKBOKBOKBGOK over and over. And so finally the GL wyandotte, has decided that she belongs in the coop/nesting box all the time these past 2 days. I'm guessing she's gone broody? If you disturb her, she fluffs up all of her feathers as much as they'll go, she makes sounds like a dinosaur about to attack and stares at your hand like she might rip it off your arm. She's never been the most friendly girl, but now I'm almost afraid she might peck out my eyes. We only have one nesting box and the other ladies get cross with her for being in the way. They either push past her and shove her out or squeeze in there and do their business quickly. Is that what a broody hen is like? I assume all these noises are normal, they're just a lot louder than I expected chickens to be. I thought roosters were the loud ones and if they are, they must be extremely loud!! Have a super fantastically awesome day everyone!
