Unless we let our chickens out of their run and into the yard, the buff orpington complains loudly from dawn til dusk, and is risking the soup pot via the man of the house. The red star whines a bit too, but its a higher pitch moan and less of a yelling chicken noise. The easter eggers are pretty quiet (but they're lowest on the pecking order too) Buff orp noise: AAAAGGGHHHKKKKKK AAAK AKKK AAKKK aaakk akk aak ak ak... trailing off at the end until the next breath: AAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKk aakkkk akk akk akk akk akkk akk ak ak Repeat INFINITELY. loudly. somehow, never going hoarse. letting them out is the only thing that shuts her up (and we live in the city so I dont want to leave em open at night b/c of raccoons, and dont want to let them out when Im not home in case theres an issue or they manage to get out of the yard). Its worst in the morning / afternoon. Anyone else have this issue? Is the next chicken going to just take over squaking once she's gone? Or are buff's notoriously whiners / screamers? Weve had two other BO, both were fairly vocal too. We gave one away for that same reason. BOs can be such friendly sweet birds, but this is really annoying.
