    So we have 2 Lohman and a Australorp they are 17wks old and they have been so very loud and wake up at the crack of dawn. They just started laying today we received two beautiful little eggs. They favour one side of the pen to roost so i am hoping that they are going to start to quieten down very soon, otherwise due to us living in suburbia we will have to rehome them :(

    Some hens are noisier when they begin laying, hopefully they will quiet down a bit.

    They are noisier when they first start laying...but they can be noisy at any time.
    Some of mine seem to go thru periods of just yakking it up and/or screeching for half the day.
