My hens used to make noise. Not too much, just some. Now they are downright OBNOXIOUS! I am surrounded by neighbors and concerned that they will complain. Heck, I sure would!!!! One of the hens is the ring leader, she starts squawking and screaming at 6am!!! Then the others copy her. 4 of my hens are about a year old, 2 of them are about 5 months. They are all laying. The loudest offender is one of the 1 year old hens. Today I put them back in their hutch and closed the hatch thinking that maybe they would "go back to bed" but they just screamed up a storm in there. This is a serious problem and if you have suggestions as to how to solve this, please chime in. I know others have the same problem too, and while I appreciate the sympathy, I would like to keep the responses to the topic of SOLUTIONS. Thanks so much for your help!!
