Hi all, I have two pullets, one is a Copper Marans and the other is a BLR Wyandotte. They are approaching egg laying age. Any day now, I keep saying. Anyway, the Marans is incredibly noisy. She honks nonstop for minutes at a time, all the time. She also crows sometimes. I live in a city, so the noise is not OK. I emailed the lady I got them from and she says that I can bring the Marans back and buy another chicken that will hopefully be quieter. This seemed like a good solution. The only problem is, my roommate emailed me today and she says the Wyandotte is hollering now too, and that she heard the neighbors complaining about it. The Wyandotte has always been pretty quiet up until now. My question is, if I bring home a quieter chicken, is the Wyandotte likely to settle down, or is she likely to continue to be noisy? I hate the thought of giving up on keeping chickens. I haven't even gotten any eggs yet. My other question is, I just started adding DE to the chicken feed to try to cut down on the flies. Could this be somehow causing the Wyandotte to be noisy? I know I'm grasping at straws. I just want to try to solve the problem in a way that I get to keep my chickens. What do you think?
