    My husband plays music for them, I don't know if it helps egg production but they do become very energetic and make all sorts of goofy sounds!

    we have the radio on in the coop and i think it helps them lay eggs cause then they feel like humans are around and they get relaxed.

    Hmm, so do they prefer the classics, or rock & roll? [​IMG]

    I have a radio on to keep the predators away. I've never seen a study on egg production. Sounds plausible though. Happy hens make for happy eggs???

    My birds listen to what I listen to, Hard Rock!!!

    they have done studies in larger farm animals (particulalry goats)that say the music isnt important as the level of the sound meaning that if you have the radio programed to 10 and that is what they are used to them some one bumps that knob up to 15 it will set the animals off for a while! but they will adjust to it.
