The ages of my pullets are 25-18 weeks old. Recently they wake up on the wrong side of the roost, or it seems that way. Why are my pullets walking around making all this racket? It's not a pleasant clucking or bawking noise either. I brought my neighbor in my coop last night showing her my nest boxes and my girls. All my pullets were so LOUD complaining we couldn't hear ourselves talk. That was after they were out for 3 hours free ranging. I can not free range all day unsupervised at all due to the stray dogs. Yesterday my neighbor had a hawk in her tree staring at her flock, so now I need to worry about that. Will they settle down? I don't want my other neighbors thinking my girls are a nuisance. Lucky for me, the noise ordinance is 7am-10pm for hobby farm animals. My girls are noisy when they are in the run. Their run is bigger then the standard, so space is not an issue here. I throw out scratch everyday, but even that isn't helping with the noise. I personally don't mind the noise, but I do worry about one set of neighbors that do not like our chickens whatsoever. They are not that close, but since it's an open field, I'm sure they can hear them. I did check for mites and bugs, but nothing on them. I use DE in the coop and keep the coop and run super clean. Maybe it's the heat? For 2-3 days it was up in the 90's and the coop was at 80 most the night. I just walked out there and they were pretty quiet for a change.
