    Hi all,
    I have two gorgeous Isa browns who are quite young but both laying daily which is fantastic. They would be about 30 wks old (7-8mths) and are affectionate, greedy pigs. My beef is though at 5:30am every morning for the last several weeks they have been doing the egg song. Well one of them is and she is LOUD!!! Rooster loud! I'm so worried that my neighbors will complain as I live in suburbia. They are laying lots of massive double yokers so I'm guessing their bodies are still adjusting to egg laying but my question is, can I do anything about the noise? They are really really noisy for about 20-60mins at a time.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Offer eggs to your neighbors and explain why your chooks are "singing". Other than that, there's not much you can do.
