‘Peep’ is for chicks, surely, but when they grow up, it doesn’t quite work.  How about instead: a haggle of hens, a pecking of chickens or a brooding or clucking of either … the latter evoking that contented, almost purring sound hens make when they are pottering about a yard, pecking here and picking there.
