We have a one year old cochin bantam who has been a good little egg layer for us. She was at the bottom of the pecking order of our four hens because of a hurt foot early on. She went broody this spring so we got her some chicks to mother, which she has done a good job with, but she started to bully our silkie to keep her away from her chicks, and now that her chicks are about 2 months old, she has started crowing constantly. It is such an awful sound, and she looks just like a rooster crowing. We're in the city with very nice neighbors who haven't yet said much about our chickens that we're not really suppose to have, but I don't want them to start getting annoyed by the noise (my husband is already annoyed enough by it). We have another hen who squawks a decent amount, but this is different - this really is crowing. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on getting her to stop, or is this a "phase" she's going through, or do I have to find her a new home? She's my daughter's favorite chicken, so I don't want to have to get rid of her. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
