Chicken noises

Jul 22, 2021
I've heard of the egg laying song, I've observed both cockerel and pullets warning sound when a bird (threat) flies over, and of course the cockerels wake up call lol. When everyone goes in to roost at night they make this almost purring sound that I assume is like a contented sigh similar to when we get in bad but I'm not really sure what it is, they only do it at night just before falling asleep. What are some other noises chickens make and what do they signal? Do they call for help or a specific noise to greet you or other flock members? Curious to know the extent of their attempts to communicate with us, recorded sounds would be cool to hear if you have any.

I would love to hear the different chicken noises. Mine seem to be making a sort of purring sound I'd not heard from my chickens before.
