    we have a fifteen week old black australorp pullet who today, made an egg song. Is this normal? And will she lay an egg soon? All is quiet now but she was makin' one heck of a racket a minute ago. Please comment if you can help.

    She's probably close to lay, but hard to tell exactly how soon she will lay. Is her comb starting to turn pink or red? Is her vent moist?
