I know chooks make noise and it's inevitable and sometimes over nothing but a plastic bag blowing across the lawn but I have 1 chicken getting waaaaay out of hand with her noise making. I keep 2 chickens in the suburbs. They are in a large coop and have access to fresh water and pellets and shade and areas to dust bathe and plants to stalk around. One of them is an absolute angel. You'd hardly know she was there, save for when a neighbour's cat jumps the fence. But the other one... well. Her name is Leni and from about 7am till 6pm when they are let out into the yard for a couple hours before dark, she will squawk relentlessly in around half hour intervals all bloody day. The ONLY way to get her to stop is to let he out of the coop but when I do that, they both get bored within half an hour and end up sitting under the verandah pooping on the bricks. The instant they're put back, she's back to squawking. I don't know what to do with her. I've tried giving them plants to play around with but they're too quickly destroyed. I've tried giving them a plastic container with holes where treat food falls out when they kick it around. They lost interest. I'm worried we're going to get complaints soon and it's driving me up the wall. She's just bloody annoying. This has been happening probably about a month now really badly I've had them both for over a year without many problems.
