Hens are Supposed to be Quiet, Right?

Our hens are pretty quiet overall, but our leghorn makes a tremendous amount of noise after laying an egg. It’s loud enough that we can hear it from inside the house. I’m not sure if this is a breed or individual characteristic. Are any of your hens noisier than others?

I finally managed to capture her on video. So here’s Boo, singing loudly after laying.  Switch to 720p HD for best quality.

  1. Oh wowza! One of my hens, Scruffy, is louder than the rest. She gets a bit worked up before she’s about to lay, and likes to announce it to everyone. But nothing like your Boo! That’s awesome.
