So no one told my BA that she was supposed to be a quiet breed as suggested on the site that I ordered her from. Since she started laying a couple of weeks ago, she screams the egg song before, during and after laying. Also whenever anyone else is in a nest box. I also got a Golden Comet that never makes a peep when laying. The BA is mouthy though. If I am anywhere near her she makes growling noises, gradually getting louder. Is there any way that this girl might mellow out as she gets older? I am worried about my neighbors starting to complain. Closest house is about 100 ft away. I have had hens for about 7 yrs but this is the noisiest one. Do you think it is as annoying to them as it is to me? The coop is about 20 ft from my house and I can hear her clearly with the windows shut. Today she went in the nest box twice for a half hour. Before each time she yelled for 15 minutes, then yelled when she came out but never laid an egg. After that she was quiet the rest of the day and acted normal. She has done this a few times. Is it just because she is new at laying?
