Molly my large fowl buff orpington is head chicken and has started this week to make loud 'kawwrr' noises early in the morning (about 6.30) and then at certain periods in the day. She is a large bird so this can be quite loud and I have neighbours on either side so I need to keep the noise to a minimum. We have started locking them in the coop at night and letting them out later (around 8am) so if she does crow it won't wake everyone up too early. When she does it she sticks her head high in the air and flaps her wings. She does this for about 10 minutes each time ... Does it sound like an egg song or a crow? None of chickens have started laying yet but they are about 16-18 weeks.
