My wife and I are just getting into chickens. We have paid for four young ladies who we are going to be getting in a few weeks. We have to get the coop built and they need to get a little older so they can live outside. So far we have been very Gung Ho about it. But then last night we watched Our Feathered Friends: Life on a Chicken Farm. The chickens were making so much noise. After that we got a little worried about the noise level. Are chickens really all that noisy?
