I have three Light Brahmas that screech their little heads off, at the top of their lungs. They are easily as loud as a rooster. Why do they do this? Are they bored? I am not talking about the clucking egg song, they do that too, but this is a much harsher and shriller sound. It is going on mostly in the morning hours but sometimes they do it in the afternoon as well. Distracting them with treats helps, so now I wonder if they are demanding treats when they do this. I have never noticed that there was any threat when they did this, nor do the other chickens pay any attention to it. Anyhow, I was just wondering. I'm selling the three as it is much too loud for our tastes and the other 11 chickens aren't doing it as loudly as these three, and I'm hoping that with the brahmas gone they may settle down a bit more and not do it at all. Any ideas as to why? I just want to see if I can create circumstances for the other chickens so that they don't start doing it as well.
