This is our first time raising hens and we have 3. First post on this forum. Yesterday and early this morning one of them started loudly, and I mean loudly, and started with the screaming. Even going out there doesn't matter. She started making her nest yesterday and it's made very nice this a.m. I contacted the breeder I bought her from but she has no idea why my hen is doing that. None of hers ever have. Does anyone know why? They are Blue Lace Wyandottes and 6 months old. I feed them fruit and veggies every morning, organic layer feed, water, and at night, special chicken treats. I'm beside myself, very concerned something's wrong, and I know my neighbors don't appreciate it and may possibly call the the city. I uploaded a few pics. We got our first egg! Very small. Is that normal? Can we eat it? I'm so lost! Please, someone help me!
