    When one of mine start 'singing', The rooster joins in.

    The sound is halfway between 'pride' and 'murder'.

    I like it, But it is an assault on the ears!

    What do your girls sound like?

    Only my Welsummer girls get too loud, sound like they are being murdered...the rest are pretty quiet.

    Mine are australorps. I have a couple of Jersey Giants, and they lay well ... but I don't think they sing very much.

    I reckon some are just louder than others. I have on that clucks gently to her self all the time.

    How old is she?

    Are you sure she's still laying? Laying slows down as they age, some will still give eggs even after four, but less frequently. Her voice might just be because she's aging
