    That sound chickens make when they have laid an egg - that loud call.

    All four hens were still up on their perches in the early morning. I heard them making that sound. I looked out and all four were doing it. None had been in to lay yet. Just sitting on the perch. I went out and saw nothing to cause a commotion. Never had an issue before anyway.

    Confusion or rooster envy?

    Only time it's ever happened.

  2. Predator scare???
  3. Yup, could be predator scared them. Or perhaps they were having choir practice? Mine will sometimes all line up on the top of the dog fence and all sing the egg song together, while no one is actually laying an egg.
    Boy does THAT get loud-good think we're out in the country [​IMG]
