    I have three chickens laying eggs. I thought they were making a bunch of noise clucking while they laid but watching them more, it seems like when one chicken goes in to lay the others start singing on and on to encourage her. Is this what is happening?

    Yup. Sometimes even the rooster(s) will join in the celebration.

    First Stanza of the Egg Song:

    Bok bok bok bok bok bok bok bok bok buh-GAWK!

    That is the song. I love when I am home on the weekends and get to hear it. I smile every time.
