I have some pretty noisy morning hens who like to wake up our neighbors (this is *backyard*chickens.com, after all ). I'm working on a new coop for them. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to keep things quiet in the coop -- that is, to let them bawk their lovely hearts out, but keep things fairly soundproofed, so I can leave them in the coop until after the sun is up, then let them into the run. I'm not looking for perfect silence, and I know that I have to balance this goal with the important need for good ventilation. But, I thought it would be worth asking this knowledgeable crew whether there were any good tricks to promote neighbor happiness through sound dampening. Thoughts? Thanks!
