    i thought it was some sound it makes due to sickness cause ive been told that certain noises can mean certain symptoms for chickens.

    i hope your right though....

    Mine make that noise sometimes, too. Especially when I sing to them! [​IMG]

    my buff orp hen purrs when she's working on an egg, along with chuckling noises. sounds like you've got a happy hen to me.
