    One of my nearly POL hens had started singing her Egg Song. Can I expect any eggs soon???

    I would think so, my girls didn't start singing until after they had laid their first eggs so yours is most likely close

    I've posted a video of her doing her song on my blog. If anyone could let me know if this is indeed an egg song x
