    I have a splash wheaten Ameraucana hen that doesn't like to ever shut up. The back yard sounds like a jungle when she is hungry, so I try to keep lots of feed out there for them. I suppose if I sell, I'll end up selling her just for the peace and quiet.

    I am having a similar problem. I have 18 young hens about 6 months old, 10 lay on a pretty regular basis. We sleep with our windows open since the weather has been nice. Last night we were awakened by the hens three times. They are sooooo noisy, I'm worried the neighbors are going to complain. Even though we do live in the country, there are neighbors that can hear them. Are there any secrets to keeping them quiet during the night?
