I've tried shutting them in the coop at night (which I know is normal for many people). I don't like doing this. Firstly, some of them like to sleep, literally, hanging out of the coop door. Secondly, with things still unresolved, I don't like to have any of them shut in with no means of self protection or escape from another henpecking hen. I can just imagine Poppy or Gloria waking up in a grump, and going for one of the youngsters. On the nights (say, a Friday night or a Saturday night) when I shut the coop door , I sleep badly.
This morning, there weren't any planes so the Girls noise was really really loud. I leapt out of bed threw open the window to try and shush them, and it was as effective as it always is - not at all. I had to go outside and talk to them to get them to shut up. I could see the downstairs lights on in my next door neighbours house, which was a bit of a shock. I think she has triple glazing, so we're really fortunate that she doesn't hear the chooks (I do check with her, regularly).
I realised that the house 2 doors down, which is angled, might be in a direct line for chooky noise. I can see that I'm going to have to do some tests next time the girls start squawking.... but I'll try and do it during the day as I suspect a n old woman wandering alog the street in her dressing gown at 6am would be a bit of a cause for concern.
All was quiet, so I went back in, locked the door, went to the loo, went back to bed.
The little madams then had another go at choir practice.
