I live in a residential neighborhood and own 5 hens. I have 1 buff Orpington, 3 barred rocks and one polish. My buff started laying in November and the rocks just started this week. The polish is not laying and making me rethink her tenure in the yard (7 months old). My buff always lets out a good holler when she lays and egg but otherwise is quiet. Not so with these barred rocks! These birds woke up the family this morning at 6:45. At 7 I went out to see what all the racket was, and they were just hanging out in the pen. Granted, I had 2 eggs in the nest, but geez! The eggs weren't even warm so they must have laid them awfully early. So, What's with all the darn noise! It went on for 45 minutes. My neighbors are going to put ME in a pot if this goes on... help? advise?
