    Hi all I posted this yesterday in another forum but realized this is probably the forum to post.

    I have read numerous times the decibel level of a hen at her noisiest is between 60 and 70. Does anyone have a link of a chart or official measurement that includes a decibel reading of a hen? I did a search but the only link I found was dead.


    Thanks

    Yes thanks. There ate lots of charts like that. I am looking for one like that but with the decibel level of a hen.. It is town ordinance related. I have seen numerous articles siting the decibel level but have not seen any of the comparison tables that actually include a hen.

    Might be worth obtaining a meter long enough to register the noise level. Of course, distance makes a difference. Our local noise ordinance gives a level as measured at the property line. A hen or a rooster in a noise insulated coop near the house would be significantly quieter than one free ranging two feet from the property line.
