    So hubby and I were out with the chickens the other day. They could start laying any day. So they are walking around making their bocky and clucky noises when one of the EE's barks. We looked at each other like huh? I swear she knew we were thrown off guard by it because we both stared straight at her till she did it again. She did it several times. We got a good laugh out of it.

    I have some chickens that occasionally make these high pitched sounds that sound like a cross between a bark and a sneeze. I still haven't figured out what they are trying to say when they do that; it is usually one of our roosters that makes that sound.
