Just thought I'd vent to my BYC friends! We've been getting summer heat which means we open our windows at night to let the hot air out and cool air in. This morning I was trying to sleep in but was woken by two hens fighting (squawking) to get access to the same nest box that another hen was using (yup, doesn't matter there's another perfectly good available one next to it). We're in a pretty residential neighborhood so each year I get worried that my neighbors are also opening their windows at night and experiencing the same morning yelling matches. I figure if it is waking me up then I'm sure it isn't making them too happy. Hopefully I can find a way to get them to use the other box or find another way to keep them quiet... if it doesn't drive the neighbors crazy it will drive me into having a firm chat with the louder girls in the bunch!
