This noon isn't a normal phrase

Yes, the English sentence should be changed.

It's a bit tricky translating the Indonesian sentence into English, though. "Siang" in this context covers the period of time between around 10 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon. So, late morning and early afternoon. Perhaps the speaker has to work or go to school first in the morning, and he doesn't want to do the search too late in the day. So he'll search for his chicken in the middle of the day. How do you refer to that period of time in English?
