    i have a couple rhode island reds that were very quiet birds until they started laying. someone told me that they had a loud egg song, but now they're loud even when they're not laying an egg. is this natural or could one of my loud orpingtons have inspired her. it doesnt bother me im just wondering and i feel sorry for the chickens that like quietness.
  2. The same happened with (I discovered today) my Rhode Island Red crossed with red Sussex hen she suddenly got super noisy but I think it's normal for them personally I think it's kinda funny watching them squak loudly all around the yard and at each other
