Our hens used to be lovely and made the most appealing noises. They still do- but in the past 3-4 month one hen has gotten horribly loud. It's not a normal cluck/bwak sound. It's a very loud, strange sound. It's like she's yelling. My fiancee thinks she's got a mental problem (that's how bad it is!) He's been on farms before and claims he's never heard a chicken get this loud. He's talking about giving her the axe which kind of kills me inside. What can I try to quiet this bird down? Is it normal for hens to be yelling all waking hours of the day? I looked her over and she's physically healthy as far as I can tell. I want to patch up the fence and give them more room to wander. I hope that will help.
