    My 11 year old son was trying to get the chickens back in their coop the other evening. He groaned out of frustration and they all ran in. Now the kids are able to get them in by humming. Does anyone know why? Here is a YouTube video. It's only about 45 seconds and hilarious!

    That is funny. Maybe they are a little scared by the sound. The one Barred Rock seem to wonder what all the fuss is about, but figures she will go in the coop, too.
