This is great! The Egg Song described in layman's terms (yuo, that's bad pun!) But the best part of the article is the audio-visual. VERY nicely done!

Thanks you very much for the kinds words. I am glad you liked it.
I really liked the way you used stories from your flock to illustrate your points - it really helped! Thanks for writing it up :thumbsup

It always sounded like "Predators! Come and get me!" to me.
Thanks for the enlightenment @ByBob :)

A well-written article which gave me some new insights into flock behaviour.
Wonderful article, makes a lot of sense and is enjoyable to read.

Thanks, Bob. Excellent summary. I actually wish people wouldn't call it the egg song as it really isn't. In my all hen flock my Beta does escort duty & some of my girls are rowdier than others. One or 2 never call for an escort & sometimes we have *group hugs* where a gaggle will go all together.

Behaviors in all hen flocks are so interesting to me. Somehow they organize themselves without the rooster just fine. Very adaptable animals. Thanks for the kind words.
