    Hi all! [​IMG]

    My chicks are only 10 weeks so I have a while to go before eggs but I keep reading about an egg song? what is this? Also, when is a good time to put the egg boxes into the coop and should I use pine shavings or hay?

    My chickens sing, buck, buck, buwkawk or something like that after they've laid an egg. Maybe that's what the egg song is. They get very excited! Maybe post pics of your coop for bedding suggestions. I 1st used hay but don't like it as it's so smelly! and I I was changing it every couple of days ( only had 3 chickens too). Now I have sand and I am much happier. The smell is better and all I do is take a kitty litter scooper and scoop away the poop. Good luck with your flock and may they be productive.
