They’ve been making these really loud noises in the morning, most important part is I would like to know if they’re ok and secondly, I don’t want neighbors to be complaining. Any feedbacks would be greatly appreciated.

Side note: I’m new here and new to raising chickens 😬

Thank you everyone for the replies. That’s definitely good news. We recently lost one so I’m on edge about everything they do lol

Now I do have another question. I have one just started now walking erratically looking for something with mouth open. Should I be concern? Thank you
Sounds like she's looking for a place to lay an egg. They can often seem panicked the first few times since they don't know what's happening (first eggs).
Most of the time that erratic/bewildered behavior will subside once they lay a few eggs but I have a 4 yr old hen that does it every time...she gets worked up for sure.
