OMG....So they are 22 and a half weeks old, and suddenly they started making all this noise, especially today! Junie, my salmon faverolles layed her first egg today, and she was a bit loud until then, now she is being good, but Velvet, my BO is going Bawk bawk bawk abwk abwk at the top of her lungs mostly all day. She is going in and out of the nestboxes, so I know she is going to lay, but is this noise going to be a common occurance? I only have 3 pullets in a very small backyard, and I am freaking out about my neighbors!! I'm embarrased they are making so much noise. We are allowed to have them in town, but surely not if they become a noise nuisance...I'm ready to throw in the towel, or have a stroke...not sure which right now. Any advice???????
