I am hoping somebody knows why on earth my dominique hen has been acting so weird lately. A few months ago, a raccoon got her sister, and she stopped laying out of stress/grief. I get that. So now suddenly my two RIR hens have started laying, and I don't know if it's sudden jealousy or what, but she has suddenly become the noisiest, nonstop racket-making hen I have ever heard. She squawks nonstop from dawn to about noon before finally settling down. It's not the "I've laid an egg" song. It doesn't appear to have any particular purpose. It's just extremely loud, nonstop noise. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to quiet her down? I've tried bringing her inside, putting her in the coop, isolating her from the others, but nothing seems to make the slightest difference! It gives me a headache!
