    Not in the coop but they come rushing over and start preening or sunbathing in the flower bed right behind the house whenever they hear reggae through the windows and if they find the doors open they let themselves in.

    cool--i was just wondering if it would be a good way to help keep them content during the winter when they are "cooped" up all the time--I am going to try it.

    The hubbie put a radio in the coop and they seem to not be bothered. I guess it is my way of having more music in the air. I did read at one time that a radio ( especially a talk show) would ad a voice in the air, and scare some of the potential vermin, cyotes and coons. They think there might really be a person around. I figured"what the heck" !

    Play the Eagles when I muck around the coop. They seem to like them.
