This is an issue that has been ongoinging for a very long time, but recently it's been getting worse. I have an Old English Game bantam (At least thats what I think) named Pepsi, and even though she's small, she makes the loudest, most aggravating noise in the history of chickens making noise. Every evening, before the flock goes to bed, Pepsi begins shrieking nonstop. Its like a drawn out cackling scream. Its absolute torture to listen to her every night while I'm trying to enjoy dinner, but what I'm worried about is my neighbors are bound to complain soon, as I live in the suburbs with neighbors that share a fence. I can't upset my neighbors, or I could lose my hens. It got so bad tonight that I actually had to take her inside my house until she calmed down. Does anyone know why she is so loud, or what I can do to stop it? Extra info (just in case): She is 20 weeks old She doesn't sleep in the coop; instead she nests on my wisteria arbor. I have a flock of five including Pepsi; three younger large-fowl and one bantam. Pepsi only really associates with the other bantam, which was her hatch mate and basically sister; they don't mix much with the younger large-fowl.
