Is this a warning call or something else.

Mine do that when they see something that scares or startles them. Or when they ****THINK*** they've seen something lol. I let my girls out quite early in the morning (they have a little light over their run area) and sometimes I have to run out to hush them up so they don't wake the neighbors. I usually take a look around the yard but don't often find what they saw. I have spied a cat or squirrel when they've been making that noise.

Even upcoming wind can cause that, just for interest sake

Either way it was fun, and I was allowed to "join" the conversation! Thanks all
