    Greetings! I have just received 6 buff orpingtons and am so excited. I am, however, alarmed at how loud they are. I am wondering if they may pipe down after settling in or if this is something my neighbors and I will have to deal with? hmmm. I will be posting updates and pictures in the coming weeks. Thanks all!

    have to agree, chickens can make a little noise.

    check out the second movie in my post below about
    the nest box. that's the kind of yellin' you're likely to
    hear.

    kinda like a land bound foghorn.

    Really? Buffs are noisy? I didn't know that. My Wyandottes are my loudest.

    I told you they were loud! They should calm down. Give them a few days.
