our chickens like to free range outside....lately they are making a HUGE amount of noise in the morning to be LET OUT. Not the cute chatter, or little cluck clucks... we are talking full BAWK BAWK non-stop really loud! We have one NH red, a production red, and 3 buff orpingtons... it seems to be the one NH Red and one of the Buffs who are making most of the noise.
Any ideas? We live in the country on 18 acres, but the way our road is situated everything echos! Everyone on this road lives here because it is quiet! We were told when we moved in 3 years ago "we all like quiet!"
We do also... and these LOUD BAWKS are not music to anyone's ear... their coop is insulated pretty well...should we keep them in longer? Are they bored?
Thanks for any help!
