    I have a hen that started laying before she started to moult(?), so then she took a break, and now she's started laying again.Whenever she lays she becomes really loud, not like most hens, who get fairly loud, she gets louder.She's only been loud since after moulting. We've had complaints from neighbors. What should I do?

    See if you can bribe them with eggs, or do something else to gain their patience. Some of my girls have gone through this but each time it subsided after a while. I haven't heard the egg song all summer! Maybe tell them if it's still happening in 2-3 months you'll re-home her or something . . . but try to get them to give you some time and she'll probably (maybe?) get over it. Fingers crossed for you (and her)!

    Heck if I know I got a loud mouth to but its cool I live on a farm.She jumps in my golf cart & won't shut up. She's probably complaining about something who knows.
