I got 2 hens off criagslist (barred rock and ancona) and they are my first venture into owning chickens in the 'burbs. My husband took about a year to convince. Now, they are making tons of noise and waking him inthe mornings. The ancona is super loud. It is not because they are laying at that time. The ancona is not laying yet and the BR lays mid-morning. Any suggestions? Imay have to find new homes for them if they can't be quieted. My hubby is super grumpy about this.
