    So I've been hearing a lot of sounds from my flock, but I'm not sure what they mean. Can anybody tell me some typical sounds and their meaning??
    Any input is great!


    Thanks!

    I think if you watch them, you can figure out what the different sounds mean. A different one for "It's a monster!", "I'm so happy I could purr", "I found food" "I laid an egg" "Let me outta here." Oh, and "I'm the MAN!" They all make sense after a while.

    Stole this from another post.....What does Bock Bock Bagock mean?. Its really so true!

    Here is the chicken language I have learned.

    Hens:
    Bock Bock BA-GOCK = I just laid an egg
    Ba bock ba BACK = hurry and lay your egg, im next.
    BA BA bock bock bock = predator
    Boooock boock boock boock =general chit chat
    Prrrrrrrr= content

    Rooster:
    Errt errr errt a errrrrrr =good morning/goodnight/these are my hens here!
    Rrrrrrrrrrrrr = mad
    Rwwwlaier = cussing out butterfly
    Rrrraaawer = let go of my hen!
    Buck buck boock booock boock = censored talk f
