Hello to everyone, I have been getting information from this forum for a while, but this is my first post. I need help, my wife and I live in the city and we thought it would be a great experience for our two sons to have "pet chickens". We bought 3 chicks during the summer: a Bantam, a Golden Laced Polish, and a Bard Rock. So far so good, Bantam and Bard Rock are laying perfect eggs and behave wonderfully. BUT, the GLP is like the teenage child from hell. Not laying eggs, doesn't obey any rules, wakes everyone up in the morning calling at the top of her lungs (she doesn't recognize her own gender), and is very skittish around us all. The only real problem we have is the LOUD calling. We have tried everything, taking her out of the coup and petting her to calm her down, squirting her with a water bottle, throwing extra feed, etc. Is this normal? The local feed store says she is a teenager and to wait and see. It seems to be something else, but we are very new to this. ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
