two of my hens started singing the bak bak bak bagock song. Does that mean their ready to lay eggs?
I think so, the time is getting near.
I got my first chickens in may, i do have a rooster well in oct i heard the girls making a racket was concerned something had
gotten into the coop.went out low and behold my first egg so i guess the girls were celabrating!
And they keep on celebrating..such a wonderful sound. But mine sing to fool me sometimes..just to get treats. lol
Well no eggs this morning but hopefully soon
Are your chickens confined or free range? If free range, make sure to watch where they are singing. They can be very sneaky. If confined in coop + run, be sure to look in unexpected places. First eggs can be anywhere. I found a first egg on the chicken ramp and one by the water fount in the run.
Thanks for letting me know that. They are coop and run. I have nesting boxes set up but they don't seeminterestes in them at all. Lucy has been paying a lot attention to a certain place and I keep watching there
do you have fake eggs or golf balls in the nests…if not, try it.
my hens normally sing that song after theyve layed an egg or if something changes around where they live
mine too, but they never used the egg song for disturbances until after they had started laying.
