    My 23 week Austrolorp wont be quiet. Is this a sign that she is going to give me an egg soon?

    I'd say probably. my hens like to "announce" before and after they lay an egg haha. I heard an old saying that said:

    The Codfish lays ten thousand eggs,
    The Chicken lays but one;
    But a Codfish never cackles to tell you what she's done.
    And so, we scorn the Codfish, while the humble Hen we prize;
    Which only goes to show you that:
    IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE!

    Thank you! That saying may get me though until they finally start laying!
