Hey everyone, I seem to be having a problem with my chickens that I just can't solve. Recently my chickens have become EXTREMELY noisy. I don't mind the usual sounds, but they have gotten into screaming at the top of their lungs almost to the point of honking geese. I usually wouldn't mind this but my neighbors are pretty close to me and I can hear the chickens screaming from down the road. I just don't want anyone to complain because it is obnoxious. It seems to be happening every day or every other day and they do it nice and early in the morning. I thought maybe I had to many chickens so I got rid of three now I'm down to 9 chickens and two more might have to go if I don't figure this out. I noticed my light brahma and my Easter egger refuse to let any other chicken in the coop when they want to lay their eggs. It's gotten to the point now where no one will lay any eggs. I have 3 nesting boxes and I actually made two more but it doesn't seem to be helping. I run up to the coop and I don't see anything bothering them, and sometimes I even have to let them into the yard to shut them up. I really don't know what to do anymore I just want them to go back to normal.
