I have a flock of three barred rocks and two brahma's- and two of the BR's have just started to lay. The first BR to lay has been laying for about two weeks. The first time she laid, she made a RACKET. I was worried my neighbors would complain if it kept up, but she has quit it since, and she now lays without any noise or fuss. Yesterday my second BR started laying. And HOLY COW. It sounds like she is getting murdered, and it continues for 45 minutes-an hour. She laid an egg yesterday and today, and the noise was consistent both days. If this keeps up, I don't know how I will keep my neighbors happy. This was not a cute little "Egg song", this was an extended ballad on the horror of egg-laying. Will she calm down? My first hen did, but she wasn't as enthusiastic as this one at the beginning. Is this normal? Can I distract her with treats?
