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

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!"

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!
