Who needs a rooster when you have these girls? My SLW and now today the other 6 are really loud in the mornings lately and I don't know why or how to stop them. I live in Atlanta and my neighbors are close. I don't want any problems with noise ect. The last 2-3 days they are so loud that they have woken me up over the sound of rain and from a good sleep (5am) so they must be loud!!! My Buff has just started laying and today my RIR started and they were 'buk, buk, bukking' with her this morning but there is this other sound like a 'mmwwaakk' (almost sinister sounding!) that is the really loud one. I thought the SLW was sick or something? At first I flew out of bed 'cause I thought something was in the coop...but no it was just them! So I gave them treats to shut them up. But again this morning (4:45) I went straight out and gave them treats to quiet them but it worked only for a while. I was thinking today that i might have to stop the light coming on at 3am and just let them sleep and give up the eggs for a while.
