    When i was a kid there was this machine in the grocery store. You would put a coin in and this giant mechanical chicken would start squawking.

    bok bok bok bok
    bok bok bok bok
    bok bok bok bok
    bok bok bok ba GAWK!

    Real chickens sound exactly like that machine when they sing the egg song.

    Someone on here has a video recording of a real one, but i can't find it right now. I'll keep looking.

    yep, its a little bit happier than the "yikes, we're in danger" song. Sometimes one of mine will sing....I'll go out to get the egg and.......nope, no egg in sight. Hmmmm, talk about being punk'd. But usually, there's a nice warm egg waiting. And I love how all the other ladies come to admire the new deposit. [​IMG]:thumbsup
