Could a rooster cluck enough to confuse it with an egg song?

    We got our very first egg yesterday and I know that it came from one of our two silkies.
    One of them, Celia, had a big 'ole cluck-fest yesterday morning, and I hear it clucking quite frequently.
    However, when I posted photos on here, most people thought "she" may be a "he". Of course, being a silkie, no one was willing to bet on it.
    I watched a few "egg song" clips on youtube, and the racket Celia was making sure sounded similar. I know roosters can cluck, but would it cluck enough to confuse it with a egg song?

    My rooster sings the eggsong right along with the hens. He's usually longer winded than they are though.
