My chickens have become very vocal recently, i do not have a rooster just 3 RIR's and 1 Mille Fleur bantam. It seems like they make a crazy amount of noise when they want to come out of the coop. Like yesterday, it was raining crazy so i put them in their coop just really because i didnt want them tearing up the yard more than they normally do. they just stood at the door skwaking like i had murdered someone! Do they skwawk when they want something? are they just beligerant? I have heard people on here claiming that their chickens "talk" i am wondering if others have stupigly loud chickens with no apparent reason? Can i stop them being noisy? Are they like dogs inasmuch that if you give them what they want when they are misbehaving it reinforces the "bad" behaviour? Help, i dont want to annoy the neighbours!
