    I have 2 reds that have been laying for about 2 months now. They never really had a problem or made much noise.

    I have been waiting for my 2 white leghorns to start laying. Today, while in the house I hear a chicken screaming! Sounded like it was being attacked! Ran out to the coop to what was going on and one of my leghorns finally layed her first egg. It had blood on it, and she screamed like she was a woman pushing out a poor thing. She would probably kill herself if she knew she had to do that once a day! only ever herd a chicken scream like that once before. It walked up next to me and I grabbed it when she wasn't expecting it. The other leghorn was probably looking at her going, hell no! I'm NOT doing that!
