Does the egg song come before the egg laying?

    We've been hearing the egg song here and there the last couple of days, but alas no eggs to be found. I even stripped the coop yesterday in my search, lol. I get all excited thinking that today will be the day I find my first ever egg, only to find poop instead [​IMG]

    Hens will start the egg song earlier when they reach the point of lay. You should except some eggs in a couple days or less
