ca·coph·o·ny   [kuh-kof-uh-nee]
1. harsh discordance of sound; dissonance: a cacophony of hoots, cackles, and wails.
2. a discordant and meaningless mixture of sounds: the cacophony produced by city traffic at midday.
3. Music. frequent use of discords of a harshness and relationship difficult to understand.

I’d like to add another definition:

4. The sound a flock of chickens make early in the morning when they sense a predator, whether real or perceived.

    We just moved our 16 peeps from our bathtub upstairs to the front porch. We’re nervous for them. They’re in a tub with heat lamps and a heavy screen on top…but I’m not sure what sort of predators will venture right up on the deck tonight. We’ve got our fingers crossed.

    Cacophony is what happens when my layers start up in the spring! Can we say ear plugs.
