    Congratulations. [​IMG]

    The egg songs sorta died down a few months ago. I think the chickens can sense when the neighbours start to get annoyed. [​IMG]

    Although nowadays they're laying at times like 5-6AM, so heaven knows if I'm just not awake to hear it. [​IMG]

    Yep - once you hear the egg song, there's no mistaking it! My hens don't make a lot of noise, but occasionally they'll do the egg song.

    I am so jealous that I never hear the egg song in relation to eggs being laid! I have heard it ONLY as a OMGOSH I WAS SCARED call.

    I love it!!! The whole flock goes into chaos. The hens are singing their songs and the roosters are crowing. I love to sit at an open window and listen to them. They are so proud:weee
