    Oh our Ameraucana is a talkative thing too. She talks to us constantly! So does our light Brahma.

    But all my girls are spoiled rotten.

    I have a game hen that clucks all day loudly when she is broody and cant get to her next box. I "debrood" her if you will, by not allowing her anywhere near a nesting box, and she roosts on trees and grump about it for about 4 days, and then gets on with it.[​IMG]

    My hens do that too! She talks so loudly that my mom warned me about killing her. My hen talks when I disturb her from eating my other hen's food or when the rooster tries to mate her and pulls her feathers. [​IMG]

    ooh ok so she is just talking lol.
    cetawin you have beautiful birds!
    i think it is a status thing because ever since the other chicken started laying she started to get really loud.
