It has been a rainy 19-week-old birthday morning for my ladies, so I have been lingering in my warm bed. The bedroom window faces the coop, and is about 50 ft from the coop door. Normally I can't hear them at all, even when the window is open. But this morning, I thought there was a crime in progress out there! Boc boc became BOC BOC BAGAWWWWWWK! Sounded like someone was screaming! I raced out there, thinking we had a predator afoot (worst case scenerio) or someone was laying an egg (best case scenerio) only to find them all completely safe and utterly egg-free. The minute I opened the door, 4 out of 6 squatted down immediately. During my inspection, I petted them all (each one perfectly fine) and in turn, they all got squatty. This is a first. Could this be the fabled "egg song" practice I have heard tell of? Since I was out there, it has come up and died down about 3 times, each time lasting about 5-10 minutes. Hoping this is a sign of eggs to come. Anybody have any thoughts? Thanks in advance, as always Bright Blessings!
