What's wrong with my chickens? Last night, it was the 3 am crowing. I keep a light on in the barn at night and it had gone out (switch needs replacing, methinks). At 3 am, I think the light came back on and Crooked Toes decided to let everyone know. Good thing husband wasn't around. Tonight, I start hearing squawking, but nothing from the geese. I drive down to the barn and shine the light on the birds to make sure everyone is okay. Yep, they are. Then, I realize this was the first egg song I've actually heard from the peeps. No eggs, though. MIFChick had already laid hers late afternoon. What's with it with these birds? I thought they were supposed to be early risers. Instead, they mimic my bad habits of getting up late and going to bed late.
