    My Kindergartner likes to sing the alphabet song to the ladies. What songs do your chickens get to hear?

    Of course. Heck, I sing to them while they're still in the shell.

    When I was a kid, I'd sing to them. Now I cluck to them.

    My flock is particularly fond of Mama's pretty chickies love scrambled eggs (sung to the tune of Mama's little babies love shortening bread). It usually means I have treats.

    I do, too! I Cluck, Broody Mom to Baby sounds, Foraging sounds, and Bwak to them. I also do the Kee Kee to the Turkeys. And the real loud Quack Quack Qua Qua to the ducks. [​IMG]

    Yes I sing to mine...I usually sing the river lullaby song from prince of egypt...I sing it to them all of the time but more when I hold them to do their weekly exam and as they are getting on their roosts....I just sing the first half of the song
    Hush now, my baby
    Be still, love, don't cry

    Sleep as you're rocked by the stream
    Sleep and remember my last lullaby
    So I'll be with you when you dream

    I say "chick chick chiiiiick chick chick chick!" That means treats and they all come running.
    If I softly speak they will rub against my hand.
    Never sang to them but I will try that!

    I do this as well, along with what I posted above. Plus the bantams get "Banty Banties!"

    I sing this to my silkie:
    Hush abye, close your eyes, go to sleep my little Sandy. When you wake you shall have all the pretty little chickies. Blacks and Whites, Yellows and Stripes, All the pretty little chickies. When you wake you shall have all the pretty little chickies.
