    I have nine guineas, 7 of which just turned 6 months old. One hen is SO LOUD, constantly yelling 'buckwheat' for no apparent reason. To make things worse my husband and I work nights, and she can clearly be heard in between dreams which is getting really old. I know hens tend to be the loudest but if I send her to freezer camp or a new home will that solve the problem or will someone else replace her? I have been told that after 1 year, they tend to not be as loud but I am not sure my sleep can wait that long. Thanks for the advice.

    hahaha, on the freezer camp idea. I still have abit over 20 to make that camp just yet. But actually, since it cooled down to minus 0, they all stayed in the coup. Noiseless or a minor peep at times. Now that things are getting warmer, they are more vocal. Mine are 6months now. Not sure on the 1yr or older just yet.
