Ok...someone please explain the "Egg Song" to me. I believe I know how it sounds, as when I was a kid, I would hear grandma's chickens hollering from the coop and her telling me that one had just laid an egg. Do they make this sound for other reasons too??? I have (9) 15 week old RIR's, BA's, and a buff O. My wife went out to let them out around 8pm this evening, and all the sudden, as soon as they all ran out to the yard, I heard one start yelling the egg song. I freaked out. I only thought they did that when they laid an egg, and plus, it was the first time I'd heard any of my chickens do it. One of my RIR's has just exploded with her 3/4" tall comb and wattles. They are huge, and extremely red. My others are still pale pink, and only about an 1/8 inch tall.
