    I am just curious...does anyone happen to have an audio of this elusive "egg laying song"?? My chickens litterally just started laying...I got my first 2 (green [​IMG] ) eggs yesterday and one brown one today. Just want to know what this egg-laying song sounds like....My hens just sound like they are growling!!

    THANKS:D

    Trust me - you'll know. It's sort of a buck-buck-buck-BA-GAWK!!! and it goes on for a varying length of time, right after they lay. But that said, they don't all do it. Of my 4 hens, two are big-time squawkers and the other 2 are pretty discreet. They also are noisier some days than others. And, sometimes they cry wolf - I go out after hearing them and find the nest box still empty. I think those are the days they sit on the perch and laugh at me and point, whispering to each other "stupid human!" [​IMG]

    Great link Babe77. One of my chickens started laying two weeks ago, but I'm never home when she does - if I'm ever around and hear that noise, I'll know what's going on!
